ArcGIS Pro - copy layout and also copy map

Say I have a layout and map setup in need a similar map but only one layer has been changed between maps. 


When copying an MXD a map and a layout are created together so the legend is fixed and stays the same. I would copy the MXD, change the title and swap the layers.  The legend will only need to fix issues with the layer that has changed


In ArcGIS Pro when i make a copy of a layout, it still links back to the original map.  I then have to make a copy of the map and re-link the new map to the new map frame.  The legend has now become messed up as it references a new map, and takes a lot longer to fix.


Is there a way of avoiding this. The whole process takes a lot longer than before.  Is there a means to make a copy of a layout and coy of a map?


I have also looked into the possibility of using the same map for multiple layouts and turning layers on and off within the layout and not the map but this is not possible either? 

Turn layers on or off independently on different layouts from the same map
