Use the memoir class (a superset of book and report) with the section chapter style.

% chapstyleprob.tex  SE 567585

\chapterstyle{section} %% this seems to be the style you want
\setlength{\beforechapskip}{-1cm} %% raise title, adjust to suit
\setcounter{chapter}{-1}  %% first chapter number will be 0
\section{First section}
