Atmosphere is a legal CFW. it doesn't provide ability to run non legit games.
For that, you will need to add some magic (called signpatches).
Find them here.

Ok and will that allow tinfoil to work because when I download tinfoil and add the files to my sd card it will do nothing when I send the hekate payload to my switch

forget tinfoil. you will need Goldleaf to install nsp files.
first you boot the payload. then you run the App (Goldleaf) on the main menu (holding R and clicking on Album).

If you are lost with black screen... delete everything on SD card except Nintendo folder.
Then install the things I said.

freeshop is a term to describe an App that lets you easily download and install games on the console like the Tinfoil you mentioned.
The standard way is to download the game on your PC and install the game via USB or SD card.
