Exclamation wire a fan/light combo (single fan switch and 3-way light switches)

I'm trying to wire a fan/light combo with a single fan switch independent of a 3-way light switch (3 locations). My only power coming in is a black hot wire from 14-2 for a light switch of another set of lights (in the three gang box shared with a fan and light switch for fan/light combo) . I don't have a power in directly to the fan. I have 14-3 going between each box and then ending at the fan/light. Can I use the hot wire from the switch that is int three gang box for my incoming hot wire and daisy chain it? Please help me. How can I wire this so my other set of lights in the three gang stays independent of the fan/light combo and the fan/lights stay independent of each other. Your help is greatly appreciated and it would really help me out. Thanks so much

Do you also have the neutral that goes with the black wire. If not you are talking switch loop and a switch loop is not a source of power because there is no neutral.
