For example, "I am in between jobs". That is how it is usually said, is it gramatically wrong or is it possible to choose whether to use "in" or not?
Yes, you're right. It's common, such as in your example, particularly with the verb TO BE. But if you don't use it you get the same meaning. Both versions are quite common. I should have clarified that I was thinking of verbs such as "jammed," "caught," etc., that already suggest being "in" or "into" something. It's not grammar; it's usage.

A footnote. When we use 'between' in the sentence, we don't need 'in':

Be jammed between two things
Thief gets sandwiched between...

Here it's useful:
We were jammed in traffic.
We were caught in traffic.

And here we need nothing else:
The engine jammed.

só FYI, em vez de "jammed", nós usamos "stuck, trapped ou caught" com mais frequência.

I missed my flight because I got stuck in traffic.

After 5 days, Aaron Ralston amputated his own arm that had become trapped between a boulder and the canyon wall.

The baseball player got caught between the first baseman and the shortstop while trying to steal 2nd base.

Dany, I think you are talking about the adjective or the noun "in-between" meaning " intermediário".
