    Connections between FW and switch and from the switch to AP should be trunk, if I understand your setup.

    The APs have to have different SSIDs set for each VLAN.

    you can set up a mage ent VLAN but it isn't necessary. I would get thing as working first. It can be confusing to get this right.

    So I have two SSID's programmed currently but the gameplan is to have 3.

    One SSID is supposed to go to VLAN 120

    One SSID is supposed to go to VLAN 195

    One SSID is supposed to go to VLAN 150

    If I set the VLAN on the SSID for 195 or 150 they can't get a DHCP address. The 120 SSID works fine.

    Perfect. So for each VLAN make sure that FW is serving dhcp, not the AP.

    You can use static or dhcp IPs that isn’t a solution bough if you have things set correctly. That won’t solve any problem if you don’t. 

    you need a trunk port anytime a connection carries  more than one VLAN. So say from the switch to FW. any other port had to be either set to a specific VLAN or the devices connected have to do their own tagging.

    Ok cool I think that may be my problem. Port one on the switch (Plugged into the AP) is set to Access. I think if I switch that to Trunk the AP will handle the tagging from the various SSIDs and then the purple will respond to the DHCP requests.
