If I try to install libssh-devel or libssh-devel I am unable to locate the package. I have updated and upgraded with apt so that all packages are now up to date, but still just get left with unable to find package.

    apt-cache search <string> is your friend – 111--- Feb 10 at 19:04

On Kali, like other Debian derivatives, you can use apt search to look for packages. apt search libssh will tell you that the package containing the development files for libssh is libssh-dev, so

apt install libssh-dev

will install the files you need.
