Belt or chain? It has to be timed properly in order to run. Align the timing marks properly and if it still won't start you probably have serious engine trouble.

Yes the chain is marked like that on many cars, it is the timing alignment chain link. You gave no vehicle make, model, year or engine type and size so I can only answer in general terms

99 gmc sonoma 4.3 timing chain is it hard to do?

Its not the easiest Gm ever gave us. you have to remove the oil pan to get the front cover off and there is also a balance shaft that tends to make more noise after you do the timing chain. A lot of technicians end having to do it twice because of the noise after.

My F-150 started running extremly rough and barely runs.

It seems unlikely it would be a timing chain issue. They are not really known for jumping and if it had jumped there would be other issues, not the least of which would be pistons crashing into valves if its an interference engine.

When was the last time a tune up was done? Perhaps new plugs, plug wires, distributor cap and rotor are in order based on the information you gave.

There could possibly be other issues, but based on what information you gave that is where I would start.
