My boyfriend of a year just dumped me a few days ago he says he wants to stay friends I really miss him and want him back when is it OK to text him ? How long should I wait ? Should I let him text me first? Should I tell him I miss him? I need help!

Don't do anything of the above!
Don't text him, don't email him, don't call him, don't whatever him.
You just need time to get used to a life without him, you'll get there! When you're in a situation like this and people say: you'll get over it, it just needs time, you think: whatevs, I'll never get over this!
But you will, it's true that time heals all wounds :) I'm not saying you'll forget him and you'll be completely over him, you might have a soft spot for him in 5 years from now. But you'll be able to say: it was a nice time, but it had to end.
But for now, just focus on his bad parts and things you won't miss. Go out with friends, read, watch movies (not love movies!).
It'll be a hard time, but you have to get through it. You can try being friends when you're over him. Don't try to talk him over, or try to get another chance, you'll just end up hurt again.
Take your time to get over him and when you feel ready to talk to him again without feeling hurt, you can text him.
But people say "let's be friends" when they end a relationship even when they don't mean it, so you'll just have to take your time and don't let him push you into friendship :)0
