You must install AAX format of the virtual instrument plugins you want to show up in the insert menu of an instrument track.
A good point on terminology. VST refers to Steinberg's plugin format(AAX is Pro Tools' plugin format). Many folks mistakenly use that term instead of the term "VI" which refers to any "instrument" plugin("VI" stands for Virtual Instrument). Some "VI's" include MiniGrand, Kontact or Superior Drummer(which come in VST format and AAX format). Confused yet
