Using the Javascript API with CityEngine Viewer

I don't know if this has been mentioned before but I have a question regarding the City Engine Viewer in ArcGIS Online and the JavaScript API.  I created for my organization an ArcScene document with 3D models depicting different structures, vegetation, and other elements including a DEM surface, which I can export to a .3ws file in 10.2.  What I need to do is to create a web map with the 3d scene that can allow a user to view information about each structure with pop-ups, link to images, other documents, etc.  Does the JavaScript API currently allow for a dynamic web map with the .3ws file/City Engine Viewer or is there another (better) way of doing this, especially considering I most likely will not be able to publicly share the scene as required in ArcGIS Online.

Unfortunately, I do not have and won't be able to get City Engine. I also know ArcScene exports WRL files but haven't been able to get anywhere with that except viewing it with a viewer.
