Just starting out with Pro trying to put together a simple map. Is there a way to add printer margins in a layout?
Also I'm confused on how to import my data into the layout itself. I have it in another active window.

Each layout document within the ArcGIS pro is separate from any map frames, unlike ArcGIS. This is actually a nice feature when you get used to it.
To show your data in a layout, you first need to add and setup a Map. Then within the layout, on the Insert ribbon add that Map frame to the layout.
All of the layer settings (symbolization, etc) are stored within the Map, not the layout. You can add a single Map multiple times, or you can add multiple maps.
This is handy for showing the same area symbolized different ways. You can even link the zoom and extent for the frames together for this purpose.
I don't see anything for the printer margins, although in theory you can create whatever margins you want by simply leaving extra space in the layout.
