The Apple Support Communities are an international user to user technical support forum. As a man from Mexico, Spanish is my native tongue. I do not speak English very well, however, I do write in English with the aid of the Mac OS X spelling and grammar checks. I also live in a culture perhaps very very different from your own. When offering advice in the ASC, my comments are not meant to be anything more than helpful and certainly not to be taken as insults.
I think that text formatting is something that must be built into the text editing app that you are using. You would need to check in the help file for that app to learn exactly how. Traditionally on Macs Command + I = italicize, Command + B - bold and Command + U = underlined. But those don't appear to work with any apps I have for iOS.

I thought that the formatting needed to be built in as well, but all of a sudden this italicized f jumped up in a text editor that I use quite often. I thought it might have to do with the funny shaped square at the top of the command key, but I can't get anywhere with that.

It sounds like you hit Option/alt + f, which gives you ƒ, which is not an italicised normal letter but a special character (Latin small letter f with hook, U+0192)
