Question about 2006 Ford Fusion
Well, let's review the codes:
P0771 is a transmission solenoid. I would start by ensuring that your transmission fluids are at an appropriate level. If that is correct and it is on, I would take it to a transmission shop.
P0128 is a thermostat check code. Ensure that your coolant levels are correct and that there is no discoloration or strange texture/objects in the fluid. This code can also indicate problems with several sensors such as the cooling fan switch. Observe your car while running and see if the cooling fans turn on and off at times and do not stay on constantly. Changing a thermostat is relatively straightforward but time consuming, perhaps upwards of 2 hours for someone doing it the first time. You should replace the hoses while you are doing the job and flush the radiator, adding new coolant.
P2195 is an oxygen sensor check code. If it is on, it indicates an oxygen sensor bank 1, sensor 1, is reading lean. This can be caused by a faulty sensor, but it can also be caused by a vacuum leak in the gaskets. The purpose of spraying around the gaskets was to see if the brake fluid would get sucked into the engine through a hole in a gasket. Because the brake fluid is very combustible, it would cause your engine to rev. You need to repeat the test by spraying specifically on individual gaskets in individual places on those gaskets to determine conclusively that there is a vacuum leak. Once you determine which gasket it is, I can answer how long it will take to change it.
I would suggest picking up a Haynes manual for your car, which essentially shows the car as it is disassembled so you can understand where things are and how to change them.

first check and see if the fan is comming on when it gets hot if it does and you dont see any white smoke i would replace the radiator.

It could be either. If the leak is roughly under the firewall on the driver's side then it's likely to be the master cylinder. If it's the master cylinder, it will probably cost you $75-80 for a replacement.
