Is there a way to add documentation to objects?
Example would be Pump Manual, Pump Diagram, Pump Curves etc.

Are you referring to annotations? If so, then yes. Right click the object
and use the Annotate menu item. If the available annotation types do not
suffice then use Project Setup to define your own.

I would like to link to Manufacturers Drawings of a Pump. Also Pump Curves and Calculations. These would be in PDF or JPG format. This could also include Tank Drawings.

Do you want these links to show up in the drawing or in the Data Manager?

Both would be nice.
Data Manager would be the first step.

In project setup, you can click on a class in the hierarchy and add new
properties. For example, you can add a property named URL and that new
property will show up in the data manager for that class.

How do I link it to a different file for each Document?

How do I create the new property as a URL?

Go into project setup and click on a node under P&ID Class Definitions and
Add... properties in the right pane. For example, let's add a URL property
to all Engineering Items.

Click Engineering Items node.
In the Properties group of the right pane, select Add...
In the Add Property dialog type in URL for Property Name and for Display
Name as String type.
Hit OK to dismiss the Add Property dialog box.
Now scroll down in the grid with the list of properties until you find URL.
There are additional attributes for that property you can change.
Once done, hit OK to dismiss project setup. Go to Data Manager and select
any node under Engineering Items and you will see the URL property.
