    I am hoping someone can guide me in the right direction.

    Is it possible to have a section (forum) where registered members have to pay (upgrade account) before posting.

    Yes, you can do this through the Permission System.

    This explains how to set up a user upgrade: https://xenforo.com/help/user-upgrades/

    You then tie that to the specific forums which have posting privileges removed for the Registered user group.

    Through the permission system.

    To summarise:

    1. Remove posting permissions for the Registered user group in the forums (via node permissions)
    2. Create a new 'Premium" user group
    3. Allow posting permissions for the 'Premium' user group in the forums (via node permissions)
    4. Create a user upgrade which assigns members to the 'Premium' user group
