Is it possible to set a new filegroup as default somewhere within this code?

ALTER DATABASE TestDB
ADD FILEGROUP USER_DATA;
GO

Or can it only be done separately with the MODIFY keyword?

ALTER DATABASE [TestDB] MODIFY FILEGROUP [USER_DATA] DEFAULT

In order to set a new Filegroup as default, it requires three steps(you missed the second one)
1. Create a Filegroup
2. Create a File into that Filegroup.
3. Set the Filegroup as default.

And hence it needs to be done in this order as three steps and not in a single command.
