SP Enterprise 16 – user profiles without AD?

Due to political constraints within our organization, we are doing our best to avoid accessing our AD to sync profiles for our SP Enterprise 16 environment. I know that MIM is an option, but I don’t know much about it and want to see if there’s a manual way of doing this that might be labor intensive, but simple and direct.

Here’s what I’ve recognized:

Within Central Administration, we have 16 profiles synced. All of them are our IT group. I don’t know how this happened, but it’s there. I attempted to manually add a profile as a test. Now there are 17 profiles. The user’s information is connected to their O365 account so it did pull in their name, email address, username, etc.

I created a Staff Directory using an Enterprise Search site template. I crawled everything, but for some reason this test profile still won’t show up as a search result. When I tested my query, it seems as if this new test profile isn’t being added to the content class=spspeople.

I’m a developer with virtually very little administrative knowledge but I have been put in this role to figure things out. Can someone ELI5 explain this to me and help me find a solution to how I can manually add these profiles without using the AD sync?

Thank you!
