First you need to understand the (different!) schmemas for modelling indoor OSM data:
Then you need to figure out a good workflow for JOSM (e.g. adding your sketch in background, hiding levels to get better overflow, ...). To add your image, I recommend an aerial alignment service, so you can add the image as WMS.
Last but not least you need to find a services that makes use of your modelled data. AFAIK there is currently no renderer or anything that supports this schema and has a clever output (3D or multilayer floorplan)

The Metalabs rectifier seems to be offline, but there are alternatives. Please keep in mind, that the floorplan might be copyright protected and itself is intellectual property, so you might get problems to host it public.

… if it is not explicitly public domain or something, then it is not even allowed to be used as help in drawing (if you plan to add the data to OSM)!

I hope you will add indoor data on josm successfully, thank you for sharing your information with us.
