Yes, if you upload a KML file in that format alongside COLLADA data, it will feed it into the tiling pipeline and place the data at that location on the globe. Using this approach to manually georeference geometry is somewhat nonstandard, but it will work. Typically, the KML file is generated by whatever software generates the source data itself.
The reason we support KML/COLLADA specifically is because that combination of files can be exported from software like CityEngine, Rhino, 3DCityDB, SketchUp, and others. To my knowledge, we don’t support file types other than COLLADA (
dae) for this workflow, but let me check my information on this and get back to you.
I would recommend trying this approach with a minimal example to see if it works for you. Here is an example KML/COLLADA combination:

Below are the ion settings you would use with these. Once they finish tiling, ensure the asset is selected under My Assets and click Open complete code example at the bottom of the panel on the right.
