Can I install pip3 without messing up my cPanel?

I understand cPanel needs and uses python 2.7. I also have installed Python3 along side it. But I seem to be missing pip3. How can I install/add pip3 so I can install python packages for Python 3 only? Maybe I don't understand how Python lib installs work? I want to use Python 3 only so I don't mess up my python 2 setup which would break cpanel.

Code:
core(/temp): python --version
Python 2.7.5
core(/temp): pip --version
pip 19.1.1 from /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pip (python 2.7)
core(/temp): python3 --version
Python 3.8.2
core(/temp): pip3 --version
-bash: pip3: command not found
core(/temp):

Unfortunately, I don't know the answer to this question because we don't support this yet. I know that python3 pip is available through yum but I am unaware of the consequences of installing this and using it.
