How do you differentiate between fractions and integers?

Integers are positive and/or negative numbers. Fractions are not integers because they are not originally positive or negative. However, they can both be put on a number line and be considered an integer. Fractions aren't integers unless put on a number line. Integers don't have to be on a number line to be considered an integer.

How does a number line with fractions work?

It just uses fractions instead of whole numbers. For example, if the numberline reaches between 0 and 1, the fraction 1/2 would be in the middle and 1/4 between 1/2 and 0.
