Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I'm drawing roads in a new residential neighborhood. I'd like to temporarily insert an image of the plat map containing the roads as a guide while drawing. Can this be done?

Copyright wise you'd need to make sure the map is either aged into public domain (unlikely if new) or you have explicit permission of the copyright holder to put into OSM.

JOSM can do this with the relevant plugin, but to do something like this in browser you might need to (ab)use OsmInEdit or similar alternate editor.

iD can use custom imagery URLS, but you will probably need to re-project the map and have them cut up into tile and hosted somewhere if you want to go down this route.
