I have sql server 2014 installed and was asked if i was using TSF. So i want to allow the feature but heck if i know what i am doing. Team foundation server is another purchase and it looks like should just be add on to visual studio?
Can someone advise as i really hate to go to these individuals and explain i'm lost.

I'm assuming you mean TFS & not TSF. If so, TFS is not an add on to visual studio rather it has it' so own ecosystem & install process. Yes, it would be another purchase is it has its own licensing model (see link below).
Once TFS is installed and configured, you can then configure visual studio to utilize it for source control when building out SSIS packages or SSRS reports (among other things). You can even put a database into source control (which is where it belongs IMHO) by utilizing SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT).
Hope that helps!
