Tabs don't work that way.
You could set up different portals on each tab, Howevet.
Why not just add a "Next" and "Previous" buttons to your layout? They would mimic the functionality of the Status Toolbar, but you'll have better control over the look of your solution.
would this just go per single record?
or is there away to make it go per a set of records in some way ?
so you're saying i could make a seperate database and then use portals for every field to show it in the same database, but underneath a different tab ?
"Database" is too fuzzy a term to know for sure what you mean. A portal requires two table occurrences linked in a relationship. You base the layout on one and the portal on the other. The two occurrences could be based on the same or different source tables. It depends on what you need to do.
And while you can set buttons tons to find different groups of records, your tab control can only display data from the current record.
so how could i create a button that would find a certain set of records?
making me able to use that button when switching tabs to only show the records i want to show for that tab.

Do one of the following:
put a portal on each panel of your tab control. Use the relationship and possibly a portal filter to control which records are listed in the portal
set up your button to perform a Find for the records you want.
Set uo up a relationship that matches to the records you want and have your button use Go To Related Records
