I am very new with Python scripting in ArcGIS Desktop.

Just wondering if there is a way to auto add in map elements?

    Would you be able to edit your question to provide more details about the type of map element you want to add and what you mean by "auto adding", please? – PolyGeo May 16 '15 at 22:29

arcpy.mapping (LegendElement) should do the trick. http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//00s300000041000000

Allows you to access properties of elements and reposition, etc.
