You just have to use the "Voices" feature. Guitar Pro allows up to 4 voices on a single track, and each voice has it's own beat count and can have notes that have different lengths.

By default, you are writing notes on the first voice, you can change the current voice, using those buttons under the tab, between the tab and the tracks : Voices

When a voice is selected the notes of the other voices are greyed out, like on your example.
The last button allows you to display "correctly" all the notes of all the voices.
