To better understand your issue I replicated your environment by downloading the Pycharm application in my system.

I followed the steps mentioned in the above YouTube video and was able to reproduce your issue and I was also not able to view the Glue Pyspark and Glue Spark options.

Later I checked the AWS documentation and found the below blog

Author AWS Glue jobs with PyCharm using AWS Glue interactive sessions


Referring to this blog, I found that we need to run a sample command (below is the example) to start the Jupyter notebook and view the Glue Pyspark options.

print("This notebook will start the local Python kernel")

Please refer the above AWS blog for detailed steps.

Hope you find the above information helpful.
