I would like to "import" my label text font color from the symbology for same layer.  For example, with a layer of 90 lines, each a different color, it would be helpful to have the label text match the actual line color.  For example, line 58 is orange, the label would also show up orange.  I am imagining it working similar to the way you can import symbology from another layer, only this would be from layer symbology to label engine.

Copy and paste the same layer by layer to the screen after you add, you can do this by changing the source.

Hi Tiffany,

We can do this now with ArcGIS Pro.  Take a look at Creating label classes from symbology.  You can find the documentation here:
