In LilyPond you would define a variable and call it where you want, p.e.:

\version "2.23.0"

mus = \relative a {
  a4 b c d e f g a a1

  \new TabStaff \mus

  \new RhythmicStaff \mus

  \new ChordNames \chordmode { \mus }

  \new Staff { \clef "G_8" \mus }

  \new NoteNames \mus

  \new PianoStaff \autoChange \mus

I'm not sure what you mean with "the feature that allows you to write
in guitar tab".
Tabs needs to be entered in the so called "notemode" as demonstrated above.
To write "put a finger on string two at first fret" (to get a c') is
not possible, although I remember there was in attempt in the past,
maybe look in the archives. I don't remember how good this was with
respect to enharmonics though.
