You misunderstand. You create a new pool in your existing topology. Your best bet would be to go to one of your existing SFB FE servers that has tools installed, Open Topology Builder and select download an existing Topology. You only use the new topology radio button for a clean installation. Then right click on the Skype for Business Server icon at the top and select New Central Site. Once this is created, you can then create your Standard or enterprise pool (and Edge pool once they are in place). The when you publish the topology, it will be part of the existing topology.

There is no such thing as Exchange 2018 CU8, you probably mean Exchange 2016 CU8?

Are you trying to install a completely separate Skype organization in the same AD organization? this is not supported. You need to just create a new pool for the separate site, Even if that new Pool only has a Standard server in it.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Since each site has its own SQL server, you can place the Central Management store in any of them. Open a Skype Management Shell and run the command Install-csDatabase -CentralManagementDatabase -SQLServerfqdn <FQDN of the server in the pool (site) you want to host Central Management>. This assumes you are using the default instance for the SQL server. If you are using a named instance, add the switch -SQLInstanceName <name> to the command. This will install an empty Central Management Database in the pool(site) you selected.  Then run enable-cstoopology. Last  thing to do is wait a few and run get-csmanagementStoreReplicationStatus to make sure you are up to date on all servers. then run Move-CsManamgementServer. this assumes you only have the Central Management Database installed in the current pool and the one you want to move to. Once the move is made, wait a bit and verify things by rerunning get-csmanagementStoreReplicationStatus. Lastly, if everything looks good, You should remove the old Central management store. Uninstall-CsDatabase -CentralManagementDatabase -SqlServerFqdn <FQDN of the old SQL Server> -SqlInstanceName <if needed>
