I need help installing an aftermarket remote start in my wife's 2018 Ford Ecosport. It's a plug and play but I need to ground the bcm because there's no hood pin. I have no idea how I am supposed to do this, I believe I know where the bcm is but I don't know where on the bcm to ground and where to ground it. Hope that makes sense.

It would help to know what you are installing (make and model).

Your Ecosport does not give any hood open warnings if you open the hood with the vehicle running?
If not then yes you need to ground the hood pin wire that goes to the BCM. I've haven't done done one of these so short of someone else adding more exact information. I believe you can use the info in this pictorial of a 2015-2019 F-150 install to accomplish your task, just skip down to the pictures of the hood latch.
