Can I join specific coordinate points from different feature classes to create a new layer?

Hi, I'm relatively new to the ArcGIS world. I'm using ArcGIS Pro 2.6, and currently working with some feature classes that represent coordinate points where certain aquatic plants are found in a lake. I have 5 feature classes (5 different species), and some of the coordinate points overlap. I'm wondering if there's a way to join these points to create a new layer so that I can identify to others that there are X, Y, and Z species at this point, not just Z species, while keeping remaining coordinate points in that feature class as they are.

I hope that makes sense, I'm happy to provide clarification or more information if needed!

Thank you!

Rebecca

I would say to look in the Spatial Join tool: https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/tool-reference/analysis/spatial-join.htm That will be a good place to start.
