No 100% sure what you're meaning by a "tool". Are you wanting to have a float panel of the parameters?  Similar to Maya's tear-off parameters feature?

If so, then if you press ctrl+p, it will float the currently selected parameter in a separate window.

Hope it helps.

Good evening! Thanks for the answer, I tried to press the "ctrl+p" keyboard - but, the options in the form of tools will not appear.

you also need to enter the state in the viewport as the parameter dialog that you get by pressing P in the viewport shows parameters related to the active tool in the viewport

so with mouse over the viewport, press Enter

Alternatively, you can right-click on a node and choose: Parameters and Channels->Parameters...

Yes there is, thanks! But, at least conveniently, the keyboard looks like Maya parameters appear.
