I may have misunderstood what exactly a duotone photo is, but ... I thought sepia was mentioned as an example. And a sepia lookalike is easy to febricate by desaturating a photograph and then bringing back some colour, espscially red I think. (It's a long time ago I did this.)
You can also turn a colour photo to black and white in Elements, at least in mine, which is Elements 8.
This picture I just rustled up by turning it into a black and white one and then colorize it in the 'hue and saturation' bit of Elements. Colorise is in the bottom right corner and you can colourpick a desired colour first and then colorise the photo.
Hope I make a bit of sense. I think it is do-able even with a simple editing programme.
It may be even a better learning curve if you have to experiment and find your own way, rather than using a preset duotone programme.
This story only 'holds' if the above photo can be classified as a duotone!.
Hope this helps! (I'm going off line now, be back tomorrow if I need to explain things a bit more specific.
