It would be really cool if you could somehow build in the ability to select auto labels and manually move them so the software could place most but you could just move the couple that aren't quite working while keeping them as auto-labels.

Also agree. Another user requested the same and the solutions offered are always to convert to annotations: https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-pro-ideas/move-the-labels-in-a-manual-way/idi-p/974473/page/2#c...

 

But I very frequently find that I have 30 odd labels in a view but only one or two not well placed so it would make much better sense to have the function, either in the ribbon or right-click style, to manually move one or two to improve readability or aesthetics, rather than waiting for the annotation tool to work.
