I'm building a room in our garage. How do I install a floor frame on
top of a post-tension concrete slab? I'm not sure what I can use to
attach it to the floor. The slab is stamped with the words, "Do not
drill or core." I am also unsure about the best way to create a vapor

Good question and smart to ask ahead of time.
My concrete slab was NOT marked "Do not drill or core." I found out
the slab was post-tension; during a bath remodel. We moved the tub
drain a couple of feet and found the cable when cutting into the slab.
Lucky we did not cut or damage it. That was 3 years ago or so and
I've not seen any adverse affect to the slab.
How thick is the slab?
Do take my advice as I'm no a pro. but a ramset anchor should not
damage the cable.

Yep, clean the floor thoroughly and construction adhesive. I did that
for several walls in my basement and none have shifted. I was going
floor to ceiling so was able to get a really tight fit.
