So I've created an surface with an image as texture. Now, this image is visible in 3D but I also wanna see it in the Elevations. Is this possible?
No elevations do not use the OpenGL engine which you need to see these textures.
The best you can do is a 3D view looking square on at your elevation.
But of course you can not document in 3D and saving as a 3D document you will lose the OpenGL again.
I have mentioned this to GS in the past and they said they will look into it.
But I'd say don't hold your breath.
You can achieve such an effect with the use of Layouts.
Save a View of the Elevation in 3D with OpenGL and save another View of the Elevation in the Elevation Viewpoint with no shading, just linework.
Then place the two Drawings based on these two View onto the same Layout, with the 3D OpenGL in the background. I think that will get you the results you are after.
I am making my own try, and i am thinking this is a bug.

ALl my try here:

Other try (atached in this thread).
Yoy can see one object.

steps done:
-drag and drop image (png).
- rezise
-save like object
-edit gdl

if y place direct into the elevation it shows (in elevation window correctly), but not in 2D plan view.
2D view ok.

in the other thread if y make the object with other process the 2D view in elevation never show.
