How come I do not have the option to select a visual force page as an option for my page layout? I want to be able to use a visual force page for the page layout because I want to list the (a custom object) products selected for the service case (which also is a custom object) layout.

enter image description here

In the salesforce documentation it says there should be a visual force page field in the left column: https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.workbook_vf.meta/workbook_vf/overrides_2.htm

Also here is an example where another user has the option while I do not.enter image description here

You only get this option if there are Visualforce Pages available that implement the correct controller. If you see a page like this in your org, you should have the option enabled.

<apex:page standardController="MyObject__c">

This StandardController implementation also enables you to use the Visualforce Page in Detail Buttons.

There may be other attributes. The only one that is relevant is recordSetVar. If this attribute is set (to any value), then it implements StandardSetController instead of StandardController and can be used in List Buttons instead.
