I need the proper shell commands to test to see if TLS is installed on my server and what version is installed.

Server specs:

FreeBSD VPS running Apache 2 - I think it's UNIX

It BSD Unix, it would most probably be provided by OpenSSL.  In that case the following command would work:

Please issue this command

openssl -v

You certainly appear to have the software you would need to configure Apache tls mechanism, etc.

You have SSL installed --which provides TLS.

Now it is a question what you want to use it with.  Appears that you would need it with Apache.  For that you would need Apache installed and mod_ssl enabled.

I hope I am not confusing you.

Short answer is YES.
