How can I check?
Who made your motherboard--make and model? Unless it is a very recent model, it likely is not UEFI.

It says "capable" next to EFI Bios in that second pic. I don't know if that means it is in fact UEFI.

No indication from this link, which is your motherboard:

Ahh, so that's why it would let me install 32 Bit and not 64 Bit?

Quite possibly. We're beginning to see more of these on the newest mobos.

If EFI is enabled in BIOS then I'd try these steps to install 64 bit: Installing to an EFI BIOS

If not then the error is more common when the installer has a bad ISO or burn, so I'd confirm both as well.

Install Windows by running Windows Setup from an EFI boot entry on the master computer. Use the EFI shell or the firmware’s Boot from file menu to launch the Windows EFI Boot Loader on the installation disk. Refer to your firmware documentation for more information.
How can I get to the EFI Shell or Firmware's Boot from File Menu and secondly how do I enable EFI?

I'd check the settings in BIOS setup to see if EFI is enabled, whether you still have an MBR disk or a GPT disk. If it's MBR I'd leave it and continue troubleshooting the install.

If it's EFI then our colleague Theog will be around in the morning to help you more as it is a specialization of his.

Yes, I did download that, and pressed CTRL+F and entered EFI or UEFI, it couldn't find anything.
