You have to have the symbol definition in the drawing before you can put it in a note or table. Just retrieve the symbol from disk, you don't have to actually place it in the drawing.
If you pattern the conveyor about an axis you can add a vertical dimension as a secondary reference - this should give you what you want without needing to draw a datum curve.
Each step of your staircase is a part that is likely identical. Reference pattern this part based upon the helical sweep pattern in the assembly.
