When someone ask for people to make a logo and it has to be in vectors. Can i use photoshop or do i need a vector program like illistrator or Freehand

If they are expecting it to be in vector format then you want to use a "real" vector application, like Illustrator, Freehand, Corel Draw, etc.
If you have Photoshop and Illustrator, then you can cut 'n paste vector objects between the two. But Photoshop files, even if they contain vector data, they still are not "real" vector documents. You need to use a vector based application and save to a true vector format like .AI, .PS, .EPS (Adobe Illustrator, Post Script, Encapsulated Post Script).

What if i use photoshop to save to those formats.
You can certainly try. I've only experimented a couple times with doing that and wasn't very successful.

There is a way to convert a selection for a vector.. but it never looks as pretty.. Take your selection the click Paths in the Layers section.. Then click the one where the hover over text says, "make work path from selection" Otherwise you can just revector it.. That always looks better..

What are vector images and formats? What is the difference between a vector image and something else, like a png or gif or jpg

A Vector image uses paths to create polygons or lines and stores information mathematically. Vector art is Resolution Independent, which means that whether you enlarge or shrink the image, the output quality will be as high as you need it to be. This is the preferred format for logos and clip art
A Raster image is a file that is totally composed of tiny dots, or pixels. It is useful for photos or complex imagery that would be difficult to create as vector art. Some common formats you may be familiar with include: PNG, BMP, TGA, TIFF, GIF, JPG, PCX,. Raster art is Resolution Dependent, which means that the quality of your image depends on the size and the resolution.
