What is it exactly that you are having problems with?

P.s. Have you seen this link?

https://xenforo.com/help/installation/
Yes I have, and I do step one I download Xenforo and put it on my computer but when I get to step 2 (this part) it says:
"At this point you will need an FTP client and FTP login credentials for your server. If you don't know these, your hosting provider will be able to assist you."
I don't know what my server is. I have a dedicated server for my minecraft server but I don't know how to install/make it or whatever

Have you purchased a hosting plan in which to use xenforo? If not, then you will need to purchase one, or use a free host (not recommended).

P.s. What about a domain name, do you have that?

Yes I have a domain (killswitchmc.com) and I have a dedicated server do I need still need to get a host? Can't I just host it off my dedicated node?

yes you can, but you'll need to install a web server (apache/nginx), a database server (mysql) and PHP.
