Is there a way to insert an image frame at specific coordinates?

The 'standard' user flow is to create the frame and then set X & Y co-ordinates or to realign the frame relative to the page, margins, guides or other objects.

You can set up the document to 'snap' frames to the underlying grid which can be effective. Or set master page guides to intersect at a desired location. Personally I just draw a random frame and reposition and resize..

If you are creating many pages - with many frames of known size and position then there are scrapbook options - and then you have scripter which can create as many frames as you want with explicit dimensions and positions across multiple pages
