Now that at least the first enchantment is available for you, here is how you can attach your desired skill to the slot:

For Mouse:

Open up your skill tree, then select the Skill Assignment option on the bottom right of your screen. At the bottom, you’ll see enchantments with 1 empty slot towards the left. With your mouse, click-drag your skill choice toward it to imbue it with the enchantment effects.

For Controller:

Follow the same method mentioned above, except you must select the ability you wish to bind and then push upwards on your left control stick to attach it.

Remember that you can only use those abilities in the enchantment slots permanently unlocked in your skill tree. Furthermore, you can also simultaneously use your enchantment abilities without discarding them from the active tab section.
