My question is how do I send multiple sets of data into a stored procedure
without doing the things I had outlined.

MySQL doesn't have arrays. Pass the data in a comma-delimited string and PREPARE the statement, or pass it as a temp memory table.

insert into table(field1, field2, field3) values (value1, value2,
value3), (value4, value5, value6);

Don't use arrays for storage, you'll lose a lot of performance.
