    When I connect to a wifi source that has no internet, I want to be able to use cell data. I can't seem to under Android 8. Is there a way to do this?

    You raise a good question and the answer, so far as I have seen, is no, it is not possible.

    What you might try (although I have not seen evidence that this will work) is to go to Settings -> System -> Developer Options and enable "Mobile data always active".

    No Developer Options? Then you need to enable:

    Go to Settings -> System -> About phone and tap on Build Number multiple times (I think it is 7 times) until you see a message "Congratulations, you are now a developer" or something like that.
