Then apply that rotation to the recap file by updating origin. Im not certain how rotation works you might have to do a few test (maybe its 360- value). Rotation will be from the Z axis only.
Once rotation is done, save rcp and reinsert in autocad
Apply translation, no rotations.
Note the delta X/Y values and apply those the the origin in recap.
Note that recap asks you to "update origin", so to move -1000x -2000y you have to do the oposite to the origin, so input 1000x and 2000y in the toolbox in recap.

Reinsert in autocad see if it fits.

I wouldnt recommend doing this as it wouldnt br as accurate as a proper survey with controls. But this is a way to do it. As for elevations you could try similar with a known elevation on your drawing.
Are the coordinates most people use to orient their point clouds based on the civil survey?
