Go to the Ford motorcraft site and follow the menus to owner information -0 you should get a list of asbuilt info for your car - you will need your VIN to access it

If it has a switch then it should have auto stop. If switched on the car will cut out when stopped say at traffic lights etc. ( sometimes ) Depending o the charge in the battery.

drive car and stop put in neutral with foot on brake, if engine stops you have stop/start.

make sure A button is not on.

Stop start is very dependant on several parameters, battery charge, engine temp , outside temp, electrical load to mention a few so may not allways work, in fact in the last  week i cant remember mine coming on and thats after a 25 mile drive to Perth.
