I am attempting to export my map after creating a layout and adding in a legend, and some text (title, date created, etc). Whenever I click export though, I am getting an error message stating: "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." Im not sure what this means or how to set the object reference. Thanks!
That's really odd. Can you provide a screenshot? It might also be worth reaching out to technical support, they are really good at getting to the root of problems like this and providing solutions. You can contact them here: https://support.esri.com/en/contact-tech-support
any link charts?

Hmmm, okay. Can you send a picture of the entirety of Pro when you get that error message? It would be helpful to see the export settings and what is active.
