Yes, you can do exactly the same with your MacBookPro.
You can close the lid, and wake the MBP by ext keyboard and mouse.
If you use the mirroring option, you are restricted to certain resolutions, if you use the extension option you can set the native ext display resolution.
If you the want to add the menubar and dock to the display, you go to Preferences/displays/Ranking which should look like this:
This is in my own language since I use Dutch
You can then drage the menubar and dock to the desired display.
