You would have to show the script to get suggestions.

Most 2.7 functionality is directly transferable to 3.6.

'print' will be the biggest stumbling block for most code.

There is a 2to3.py script that can flag most issues during the transition process, but seeing what you have would be easier.

As a noob to PRO, I would recommend that you install your packages through the Package Manager with ArcGIS PRO.

Launch PRO... click on about ArcGIS on the bottom left... go to the python link... it will show you the installed packages, those that need updating and those that you can install... locate spyder, install, wait, then close and create a shortcut as per the link
