Hi M Stolyar,
Couple of approaches come to my mind with regard to your scenario. The first one, which you have correctly assumed, is to edit the ControlTemplate of RadTabControl. The second one is to put a ContentControl on top of the RadTabControl and hide it when necessary.
Let me know which approach is more appropriate for you.
