I have tried to use pick block on xbox but it will not get the data saved for what I pick even with other buttons.

  • I don't think this is possible currently in bedrock edition. Have you tried holding the sprint button at the same time as the pick block button?

A solution would be to connect a keyboard or have a player with a PC join, maybe there is some way to have your controller configured like a keyboard though.
