Currently, to have any type of inset, it must be it's own independant data frame.

Instead, how about "sub-frames" where the data is still connected, you are just viewing a different area/extent.

Example: Map of USA, to include Alaska and Hawaii you make seperate data frames with independant symbology, so a change to one symbology requires going in and changing sybology for all 3, or more, data frames.

Instead: Use the "sub-frames" to bring the other two states into view, with connected symbology and lables and only one layer of annotation that goes over top of it all.

This is how map frames work in ArcGIS Pro. You can have multiple map frames with unique extents pointing to the same map.
