I found pretty useless IIS Log Parser (with Studio) for SharePoint.

OneNote document is not a one file, but a number of files in a folder. You can save OneNote document in SharePoint and it would looks like a file, but internal implementation of OneNote in SharePoint is actually a folder content type.
And if you try to assign properties to OneNote document - you just can't.
I haven't seen any clear instructions from Microsoft on the subject. And here we have an “unsupported” workarounds. Actually, there are two: “Change Content Type” way and “Quick Edit View” way.
As you know, Project Server 2016 is actually a service application on SharePoint Server 2016.
Which means if you want Project Server 2016, you must have SharePoint 2016 first.
But if you have SharePoint 2016 farm, it's much easier to get Project 2016. Moreover, once you build robust, scalable and high-available SharePoint, you get the same to you Project "for free".
NB: Project is licensed separately.
