I'm not quite clear what you have and what you're trying to get to.

Can you clarify?

Do you have an mxd, a map service on an ArcGIS Server or ?

This might get you pointed in the right direction:

Hi Zachary,

If you're trying to register a map from ArcMap (e.g., a .mxd document) with your ArcGIS Online organization, it won't work. That is not a supported workflow. You need to publish your map document as a map service first, then it can work within ArcGIS Online. You can publish directly to ArcGIS Online and create a hosted feature service, or publish to an ArcGIS Server site (which you would have in your organization).

FYI, How to publish a service from ArcMap or ArcCatalog—Documentation | ArcGIS Enterprise 

As Paul said, if you could please clarify what you want to do, then we can help further.

Hope this helps,
