I have customize SharePoint document library form using power apps. However that form is displayed only when user click "edit all" after uploading a document.

enter image description here

How to turn off the details pane entirely and open the customized form directly by default after uploading a document without additional step of clicking "Edit all" in properties pane?

You cannot customize the details pane using Power Apps, you can only customize the "Properties" forms of document library.

Here's what you can do in SharePoint online:

A. Disable editing of metadata from details pane and quick edit from library settings.

B. Customize Properties form using Power Apps and use below steps to open the form:

  1. Go to SharePoint library
  2. Select one document
  3. Click on Properties from command bar at the top or from context menu (...)

For more information, check my answer at: Make properties not modifiable in SharePoint library with PowerApps

If you want to open Properties form directly from library view, you can use JSON formatting with editProps row action.

To have the editable version of a form open in the library when a user opens properties:

In PowerApps, update SharePointIntegration > Advanced > OnView from ViewForm(SharePointForm1) to EditForm(SharePointForm1)
