    Growing figs is not too difficult. This article covers the basics: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/figs/how-to-grow-figs.htm

    Grafting is not used with figs as often as with many other trees, but here's some basic info: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/grafting-trees-what-is-tree-grafting.htm
    The length of time it takes a fig to fruit is dependent on many things - variety of plant, climate, etc. - but in general look at 2 - 6 or more years.
    Finally, regarding figs in vineyards, this is historically not done because the fig will inhibit the growth of grapes by using too much water, creating too much shade, and attracting bugs and birds. But if you're not interested in growing grapes, you could put the fig there.
