I have no clue, tell us, you certainly can use them together (as you write

No transparency at all? that's interesting. In any case, transparency
would have to be set on both the tab-windows and the main window, which
is currently a bit tricky to do. Also, not all types of transparency work
correctly (due to limitations in rxvt-unicode and/or X11 and/or your
composite manager).

(maybe somebody who knows more about tabs and transparency cna come up
with a way to do it - I use neither tabs nor transparency mself).

Sure, check the documentation (usually in man urxvtperl).
