The project is called SAMBA, take a look here: https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Setting_up_Samba_as_an_Active_Directory_Domain_Controller

Simpli use openldap you get some limitations: https://www.itprotoday.com/management-mobility/integrate-active-directory-and-openldap (may you can find some think more recent)

You can join Linux machines to the AD DS domain directly, without needing to use other LDAP directories. Use realmd to configure sssd relatively easily.

GPOs is a policy system for Windows machines. You will need to implement something else for Linux policy. Possibly commercial GPO for UNIX software, or a different configuration management tool.
