Do I have to set up the digital certificate on the iSeries to

Yes. You'll need DCM, DG1 and if you're running V5R3 5722-AC3 (to
enable encryption). You'll also need to import the appropriate signing
certificate of the remote server. This may be a CA certificate of an
internal or external CA, or the FTP certificate itself if it uses a
self signing certificate.

I've written about this before:

Don't get irritated by the title - it will work in the most common
circumstances, and you will have some step by step instructions.

The official documentation is here:

or can I get my secure session by using just the *ssl and *secure
options on the FTP command?

You'll need to do this too.

I've tried the STRTCPFTP command but get an error -95 and
have not found this code in books or searches yet.

You can hover over the message and press F1 to get a detailled
explanation. I THINK this is because you're missing AC3. Not sure
though.
