So, if I want to open a tab that exists in my current open Firefox to a new window, or a new private window(Good for accessing an alt account without logging out a main account), I have to right-click the taskbar icon for it, or the desktop icon, firefox's settings menu, or a keypress; navigate to the page, and log in.

It would be super convenient to send a tab to a new window or private window from right-clicking the desired tab, and selecting an option. Currently, (90.0..1), there is just a send to container option, which doesn't exactly accomplish what I am looking for.

This is purely QoL, but it would speed things up quite a bit.

Right-click on the tab and look for Send Tab.

For now, you could consider using an add-on for this. There actually are several of them. Of the four I briefly compared, this one has a decent number of users and a decent review score (and doesn't close your current tab when opening the new one). I have not tested it myself.

Note that there is "Move Tab -> Move to New Window" in the Tab context menu to tear off the tab.
