Ok, so I figured it out. Will take time to share my different steps so hopefully someone else in my situation can also fix their problem. Maybe someone with a much better understanding can explain a bit better what happened.
Did new install of Ubuntu 18.04, and it had kernel 5.something. Touchpad was working great, but tried all the different instructions to get wireless going an nothing. (at the build time it would give errors)
Read a post that mentioned they got wireless working with kernel 4.15 so I downloaded kernel 4.15 (downloading the .deb files).
So I boot up with kernel 4.15, and touchpad and wireless where not working. I went ahead and tried one of the wireless fixes, and it compiled correctly and had wireless working, but no touchpad.
I then started downloading different kernels, for the most part all the 4.xx kernels I tried would have wireless working without having to do anything. Basically I didn't have to recompile anything, nor did I have to put in my wireless password.
All the 4.xx would have wireless working as soon as I started up the computer but not the touchpad, and all the different 5.xx kernels would have touchpad working, but no wireless.
Today I finally installed ukuu to help me manage the kernels. I had a long list of kernels so I started to delete them.
I think I ended up deleting the kernel version where I first got the wireless to work, and after I rebooted with a different 4.xx noticed the wifi didn't turn on. At fist it seemed like a bad thing. I had read that kernel 4.19 did seem to recognize the touchpad. I had tried it before but it didn't work (but the wireless was working).
So I went ahead and downloaded kernel 14.19.66, when I booted up noticed touchpad was working, but no internet.
I went ahead and ran the instructions on this link How to install Wi-Fi driver for Realtek RTL8821CE on Ubuntu 18.04? it did compile with no errors. Rebooted the computer, and finally ended up with working wireless and touchpad.
I had tried kernel 4.19.66 before (.66 is the newest 4.19 kernel) and wireless was working, but not the touchpad. Seems that by deleting the kernel I originally used to get wireless to work, allowed kernel 4.19.66 to recognize the touchpad, but not the wireless, but once I applied the fix on kernel 4.19.66 I was able to get wireless working again without losing the touchpad.
Hope this make sense to someone that might have the same issue.
