Unlike view modes you can't select form modes out of the box. To manage form modes you need a module. You can try one of these:

    I would choose /form_mode_manager module (unfortunately it does not show "Edit as TITLE" tab for entities created with ECK module, but that option is at least available in ECK module's "Content list").
