There is a metal or plastic edge on the overlapping piece that can be mud filled during the finishing.
Same thing for the curved section on the right.

It looks like L Bead is the product I am looking for.

If I cannot get it, do you think if I use square trim a little thicker than the drywall and tape it I could get the same effect?

Regards

No. This would be easier with the bead.
