Sorry i am new at this and wanted to know if we file both at the same time? both are in the US 

Yes .. as well as the Advanced Parole I 131 and Employment Authorization I 751. These are few free when filed with the I 485   Without them your spouse won’t be able to work or return to the US, if he/she has to travel, until the GC arrives(12-18 months ). The EAD and AP take 4-5 months

Do we have to file the EAD and AP or can we just apply for her green card?

No but she won't be able to travel internationally or work or get a Social Security card.  Banking, getting insurance, and filing taxes becomes a pain.

It either comes with the EAD, which is processed quicker, or you can apply for one after getting the Green Card.     THE AP and EAD are free if you file with the I-485.

It's optional, but highly recommended. And they are free to file: https://www.uscis.gov/system/files_force/files/form/i-485instr.pdf Page 16 "If you properly file Form I-485 and pay the required fees, you may file Form I-765 and Form I-131 without paying additional fees. You may file these forms together, or if you choose to file Form I-765 or Form I-131 separately, you must also submit a copy of your I-797C, Notice of Action, receipt as evidence that you filed and paid for Form I-485."
