Item (アイテム [item] in Japanese) is a simple ability that enables the character to use items. It never has to be learned by itself, although you might have to learn the ability to use different items.

All Final Fantasies have the Item command. It can usually be found in the bottom of the command menu. The only times when you don't have access to this command is when the game has a job system (or deep ability system) that lets you choose which abilities to equip, and you choose some other ability over Item.
