Sounds like you have some searching and reading to do.

The PID will have a rating but it's unlikely to be high enough to control an heating element so you'll need an SSR

Make sure it's input is within the range of the V output on the PID and the V and A rating matches the range of the heating element you are using.
PID and the SSR will be labelled.

Assuming you're using it to control a heating element you need to connect it up like this...
