Python 3 on ArcGIS Server Linux 10.8.0

I am installing ArcGIS Server 10.8.0 (Linux version) on a Cento 7 OS server.  We are publishing geoservices from ArcPro (I also use a script to publish these services from a service definition file).  All our python code is 3.6 for the geoservices.

The problem is that I need to install python modules (suds-py3, cvxopt, lxml, sqlalchemy, ....).  Is it possible to load up these modules on the ArcGIS Server for python?  The documentation seems to say NO for Linux (should have read first!), and shows a way for windows.

I was hoping that I just misunderstood something and there is a way.  Seems like a big issue if you can't add modules.

Also,  I was told by a colleague that you can setup ArcMap to use python 3 for geoservices.  I don't believe this is correct, could not find any documentation on this.  Am I correct - I thought you had to go to ArcGIS Pro if you want to use Python3.

Thanks for any Help!

I'm not sure which python you're referring to, but the docs do say that you need to install conda and the arcgis-server-py3 conda package on the ArcGIS Server to use python3. In which case, it technically should be safe to install any module you need, as long as it's done on a conda environment you create and own.
