I have source fire on my SSD that I need to upgrade but I don't quite get it, is the FTD a replacement for Sourcefire ? and also an upgrade for the IOS code ?

Do you have the original sorucefire appliance or ASA Firepower? FTD is only supported on ASA and FTD devices. FTD combines ASA traditional FW features with NGFW feature of Firepower into a single image.
