Which enterprise feature am I trying to use here:
TacticalLayer _tlDummy = (TacticalLayer)m_tld.MockedInstance.Layers[0];
//tl is created as a regular object.

I presume it is the natural mocks chaining.

How do I work around this?

I need to get a fake object from the iterator for the Layers. Unfortunately I only have a pro license...

It is indeed the chaining.
The work around is simple. Just break the chain into separate statements

SomeObject obj = m_tld.MockedInstance as SomeObject;
TacticalLayer _tlDummy = (TacticalLayer)obj.Layers[0];

I don't know what should be the type conversion of m_tld.MockedInstance so just replace the conversion to the correct type in your code.

The problem is a bit more complex...

foreach (TacticalLayer currentLayer in situation.TacticalLayersDictionary.Layers)

situation and all inside is to be mocked, I just need an object (of my creation) to be returned as the first item, so that the currentLayer is the object I have created before starting the expectation recording.

how about just mocking the call to Layers and returning from it a fake collection containing only one elemnt that you initialize at the start of the test?

something like:
List<TacticalLayer> fakeList = new List<TacticalLayer>();
