User Guide wrote: 3.3.2: Group Permissions

This panel will allow you to control a group's access to private forums. It will also let you specify groups as moderators of a forum. If a group is moderator of a forum, then each of the group's members is considered a moderator of that forum.

To edit a group's permissions, select the group name from the dropdown box, and click Look Up Group. To grant moderator access to a group, look in the desired forum's row. In the last dropdown box in the list, choose Is Moderator.
3.3.2.1: Simple Group Permissions

To grant a group access to a private forum using Simple Permissions, Choose Allowed Access in the Simple Permissions for that forum. Choosing Allowed Access is the same as setting all Advanced Group Permissions to ON.

3.3.2.2: Advanced Group Permissions

Advanced Permissions will allow you to grant specific behaviors to a group. In the Advanced Permissions panel, there will be a dropdown box for each Permission type that is set to PRIVATE in the Forum Permissions panel (for more information, see 3.1.2 Forum Permissions). To grant the group a specific PRIVATE permission in a forum, simply set the appropriate dropdown box to ON. To grant all PRIVATE permissions of a forum to a group, use Allowed Access in simple mode.

I don't have the option to set the permissions.
And I do not know why this is or how should what I need to do to fix it.

I think you mean the private forum access. Set the forum permissions to "Private" or similar to have those kind of options appear to you. That's why you don't see them.
