If I purchase a Fire HDX with 4G do I have to purchase a data plan at that time, or can I purchase it later?

You can purchase it later.

You can purchase it later, but you need to decide if you will want Verizon or AT&T when you purchase the tablet.

Yes because their networks aren't comparable. A Verizon device will not work on AT&Ts network and vice versa.

If you get a 4G model - you have to pre-choose which carrier you "might" use in your future data plans... as the Kindle 4G hardware is different for each of the carrier choices - ATT vs Verizon -

The data plan is just a monthly - pay as you go - type plan, no contract...
so buy it for that month when you need it,
and don't when you no longer need it.

How do I purchase the data plan on my kindle fire hdx? Where do I look for this option?

You don't buy it on the Fire, you buy it from AT&T or Verizon, whichever model you bought.

You would need to check with either AT&T or Verizon depending which model you have.
If you didn't purchase a version with 4G/LTE then you can't connect it to a dataplan since it doesn't have the hardware for it.
