Is there a Safari keyboard shortcut to move a tab?
If not, how can I make one?
I wouldn't even know how to write an AppleScript for this, the only method I see of moving tabs is to drag them.

Here are two AppleScripts for moving tabs one position right or left. The AppleScript gets the current tab index, checks if it can be moved, then moves it and ensures it's still active. This does refresh the page though but this appears to be a limitation of the AppleScript since it uses the Standard Suite's move.
Move tab one to the right
tell application "Safari" to tell front window set currentindex to index of current tab if currentindex is equal to number of tabs then return move tab currentindex to after tab (currentindex + 1) set current tab to tab (currentindex + 1) end tell
Move tab one to the left
tell application "Safari Technology Preview" to tell front window set currentindex to index of current tab if currentindex is 1 then return move tab currentindex to before tab (currentindex - 1) set current tab to tab (currentindex - 1) end tell
You can assign keyboard shortcuts to these by creating a service to run these scripts and assigning a shortcut to the service, or with a third-party app.
