I think the short answer is still, you don't, unfortunately.  The Create GIS Server Connection File tool isn't/wasn't a core geoprocessing tool but an ArcPy Mapping function, and the ArcPy Mapping module was completely overhauled between ArcMap and Pro.  I haven't double checked in Pro 2.7, but last time I looked into this issue there was no good solution.

UPDATE:  See an option on using the undocumented  arcgisscripting._createGISServerConnectionFile.
