The only difference between the Ender 3 definition and the 3Pro definition is that the 3 has "disallowed" areas for the clips that hold the bed down.  They are annoying and make the "printable area" a lot smaller in the Y direction.

When Creality wrote the definition file they held the build area to 220 x 220.

If you put the nozzle 2.5mm in from the left edge of the build surface, and 2.5mm in from the front edge of the build surface and then drop the Z to 0 you can then use the "Set Home Offsets" command on the LCD followed by the "Save Settings" command.  Then go back into Cura in the Manage Printers / Machine Settings and make your build plate size 230 x 230.
