What I am trying to achieve is the following tab setup as in the "CoursePress" plugin for WordPress. My idea is to have different tabs for a custom post type, where the main setup tab also has the publish/schedule metabox.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Your question should be specific to WordPress. Generic PHP/JS/SQL/HTML/CSS questions might be better asked at Stack Overflow or another appropriate Stack Exchange network site. Third party plugins and themes are off topic, they are better asked about at their developers' support routes." – Krzysiek Dróżdż, Fayaz, Jack Johansson
These tabs don't come from WordPress - it's not part of WP GUI.
So if you want to achieve that look, you'll have to implement it by yourself using custom HTML, implementing most of the logic and using
But... It isn't a good idea.
First of all, interface should be consistent. All WP users know how to use native WP editors, and no one is familiar with your idea - it will be inconsistent ;)
Another reason not to implement this design is... Gutenberg - it will be default editor in WP soon and it will cause some major changes in editor layout - so most probably your idea will cause many problems then.
