There is no reason to post twice.  Photo Mechanic only browses photos on real disks that are mounted on your computer.  If the folder you're browsing (iCloud) isn't a real folder on a locally mounted disk or NAS drive, then Photo Mechanic will not be able to browse it.

Is it safe to say this holds true with Google drive as well? I store all my images in google drive, but I don't have the image folders stored locally to the system. I'm trying to figure out if I would have to vastly change my workflow to incorporate PM into my system.

That would entirely be up to whether the Google drive acts like an actual disk mounted on your computer.  If it works, I expect performance to be poor.
