OK well I finally got my FTP server all working and stuff using PureFTPd manager, and I can connect fine, but how do I make it integrated with SSH for SFTP to be more secure?

SFTP uses SSH (aka Remote Login).

If my understanding is correct, you don't even need FTP to be enabled. You can just enable SSH / Remote Login and connect immediately.

SFTP is entirely dependent on SSH. Open up the remote login option, then test with a client such as Filezilla.

Yes, that's what I said yesterday.

Very true.

Again, that's what I already said yesterday. Why give a duplicate answer 16 hours later?
