    How can I create a SSH key for an individual user to login via SSH with?

    The only thing I see see is
    Manage root’s SSH Keys

    Is there also way to create a user that does not have a domain, but belongs to the same group as one of the domains on the server so I can write data to is?

    You can create a key via the "SSH Access" option in cPanel. This is documented at:

    SSH Access - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    You could use steps similar to what's documented below to create a reseller without an associated domain name:

    How to Create a WHM Reseller Without An Associated Domain - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    However, using the same group or user for multiple accounts is unsupported.

    Thank you.
