I am hoping to get a headboard like this one. What do I actually need to use it? Is the common option to use a metal bed frame or is there some other type of bed structure that I should be using with it?

There is no reason that the headboard has to be attached to the bed frame. I have slept quite soundly at the houses of family members where the headboard was a freestanding fixture or attached to the wall and the bed sat on the floor next to the headboard.
Mine is attached exactly as in your photo, but it sure is squeeky because of the inability to stabilize completely.
