You can define custom tensors, cf. for example

https://mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/148680/defining-a-two-index-field-in-feyncalc

but those normally do not care about any special properties. Although
you can of course add those properties (e.g. symmetries or special
behavior when contracted with particular vectors) "by hand". The
decompositions would need some user defined functions, though.

There is for example a toy addon FVProjection that implements the
decomposition of a 4-vector into transverse and longitudinal components
along the direction of the given vector

$LoadAddOns = {"FVProjection"};
<< FeynCalc`

FVProjectionL[x, mu, p, Dimension -> D]

FVProjectionT[x, mu, p, Dimension -> D]

Another useful example is the function LorentzToCartesian in the
development version
that decomposes Lorentz tensors into their temporal and spatial components:

https://github.com/FeynCalc/feyncalc/blob/master/FeynCalc/Lorentz/LorentzToCartesian.m

I believe that with some will and motivation you can write the stuff you
need along these lines.

Cheers,
Vladyslav
