I had some java fern tied to a log that I needed to take out for a while. The java moss and java fern dried out completely. I put the log back in the tank and the moss looks ok but the fern went from bright green to a duller dark green. Will the plant come back to life or should i just get rid of it.

Also, how long does it take for the moss and fern to connect itself to the wood?

If the fern "dried out completely", it is ready for the compost heap. If you stored it in a plastic bag or such, where it was kept in a moist environment, it will come back. Edit: It might come back to life from its rhizome (sprouting new leaves) even if the existing leaves dried completely.

How fast they cling to the wood depends on how fast they grow. Maybe a month?
