How can i manually assign a value of vibrato to the modulation wheel for a particular sound? For some strange reason I’m just not seeing how to do it....

Vibrato is the musician term… The synthesizer jargon is Pitch Modulation Depth (PMD)

PMD is typically applied by the Modulation Wheel, but contrary to popular belief is not automatically assigned (this means in every Voice that the Mod Wheel applies vibrato you can find where that is assigned) here is how: call up any Voice where the MW is being used to apply vibrato.

Example: PRE 5:049(D01) Mini Soft
Press [EDIT]
Press [COMMON EDIT]
Press [F4] CTRL SET
One of the six Control Sets will be assigned to the task
SOURCE = MW
DESTINATION = E-LFO PMD
DEPTH = influences the amount of variation applied

the “E-LFO” is Element Low Frequency Oscillator.
A Low Freq Oscillator does just what the name says, it generate very low vibrations, below the range of human hearing… These manifest themselves as rates, like 2 times or 4 times a second (humans can hear down to about 20 times per second) below that we recognize the frequency as a rate.

Vibrato is a musician varying the pitch of a vibrating instrument a few times per second…

That said, some instruments on you XF were recorded with vibrato in the waveform. In those cases you do not get to control the amount or depth of the vibrato.
