I have a Yamaha RX-A3080 which has a 2-prong AC outlet on it. I have an audiophile 3-prong power cord from an old setup. Can I use that power cord with the 3080?

Why?

It will improve the sound quality by EXACTLY 0.000000%.

There is no such thing as an "Audiophile" power cord.

If that is an auxiliary 2-prong receptacle to power other components, NO.
If it's a 2-prong AC inlet to power the Yamaha, will that audiophile cord connect to it?

To answer your question "Will a 3 prong plug work on a 2 prong AVR inlet" Yes it will work. I will leave it at that. The ground in the cord just won't be used.
