To help you better we need some information from you.

*** Please fill in the fields below. If you leave fields empty or specify 'latest' rather than the actual version your answer will be delayed as we will be forced to ask you for this information. ***

Product, version and build: 5.6.166
32 or 64 bit version of product: 64-bit
Operating system: WIndows 10 1903
32 or 64 bit OS: 64-bit

*** Please add details and screenshots as needed below. ***

When I set PSS options to PowerShell 6 on the local machine, debugging isn't available. This post (from May, 2018!) -- ... hell-core/ -- says, "The ability to Run and Debug the PowerShell Core script file will be implemented in a future release."

Has this been done. If not, when is it expected?

No, not yet. Microsoft dragged their feet releasing a functioning SDK for PowerShell Core.
There is no specified date at this time. As PowerShell 7 will become a mainstream Windows component again, it will make things 'easier'.
