    There is A solution - a Registry tweak,
    didn't have any problem with this one

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\Shell\InstallPackage]
    @="Install Package"
    "HasLUAShield"=""
    "Icon"="powershell.exe"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\Shell\InstallPackage\Command]
    @="powershell -nop -c Add-AppxPackage -Path '%1'"

    I added registry tweak, installed package through PS Add-AppxPackage and Terminal app still won't open. I don't know why.
    I think LTSC is missing some component/s that allow run apps from "Add-AppxPackage" installation, because I just opened Microsoft.WindowsTerminal_Win10_1.15.2524.0_8wekyb3d8bbwe.msixbundle with 7zip and opened CascadiaPackage_1.15.2524.0_x64.msix within it and next extracted all files from there to system drive and WindowsTerminal.exe opens and works without issues. (basically standalone version)
    There is something wrong with packages instillation on LTSC, but nobody knows what and if there is a workaround.

    No, not for regular consumers

    but you can get the license for MS Apps provided with Windows

    Won't lanch in Audit mode? or after sysprep?
    maybe Add-AppxPackage is needed in this case (after sysprep)

    is the license full offline?

    it's always best to add the app offline to install.wim

    @n3ro97 I just used Fluent Store which is a front end for the Windows store
    github.com/yoshiask/FluentStore

    Note: The app also gives you the option to download the appxbundle and save it. Which you can install by clicking on it whenever.
