I have a directory of about 800 tiffs without any geo reference information, but was also provided an Excel doc with the intended datum and coordinate system, as well what I assume to be the arcthe required information for each image.  

The columns in the Excel doc are Easting, Northing, Orthometric Elevation, Phi, Omega, and Kappa.   

I am curious which Pro tool I need to use to add spatial information to the images (so I can add them to a map, create orthomosaics, publish, etc. etc.). 

If not easily done in Pro, I can also use Python / Arcpy to do the same, I'm just not sure what I need to do.

Example:

are you looking for information on creating an ortho mapping workspace?  There are several types in the help files and they popped up with a search using phi, omega and kappa

Here is an example of one type, check the left help pane for more examples

Thank you - this has helped me get in the right direction - it's a little confusing (being brand new to imagery workflows) because I don't believe this imagery is "scanned" in the way I'm thinking about it, but I guess the lack of spatial information in the tiffs means I should treat it as such.
