You don't have the proper wiring to do what you want.

Run a 2 wire cable from the 3 way on the left of the diagram to the receptacle.

It would be rare you could install a well pump on a 120V lighting circuit. I don't think I've ever seen a 120V well pump.

Possible and code compliance are not necessarily the same.

You can not do with cable installed unless you illegally use the ground wire for a current carrier.

my teacher said in all the years he's been teaching only 2-3 people have done it. I cannot use ground or neutrals as current carrying conductors.

Either you are an ESL person or you are on a phone without spell check.

I assume you are asking if a receptacle can carry current through if the tab is not broken off.
Yes, like the millions of receptacles out there in use, the tab can carry the full current of the circuit if it is left in place.

Well he's wrong. He is trying to test you, or he has some non-complaint way of doing it.

Also, neutrals ARE current carrying conductors. They're just not "hot" conductors.
