We can create a map series using the "Map Series" button. So, can we use ArcPy to automate the manual process?

There is a note at the top of the mapseries-class page that you linked to that states:

You cannot use arcpy.mp to create a map series.

However you can create a new spatial map series via the CIM object.

There is an example called MapSeries_CreateNew.py that is provided in the ArcGIS Pro 2.5 CIM Samples V1 that you can find on https://codesharing.arcgis.com/
