Greetings @kawahyu, @cjuergen

I think it is better NOT to customize the core theme files.
For customization it is more appropriate to use child themes. It can be read here: OJS 3: Need help with theme customization

Actually I already changed the make submission block appearance by creating child theme and modifying .less file. It is quite easy.

To decrease vertical space it can be something like:

div.pkp_block block_make_submission {
    padding-bottom: 0px;
    margin-bottom: 0px;

Actually, as I see there is only padding that you can change. Other variables are not defined (0 by default). Padding is a space around the content.
