A frame of reference is a perspective from which something is observed. By defining your reference frame, are are defining your perspective (coordinate system).

A diagram is just a picture. What you thought a diagram was when you said: "a diagram since it would use vectors and the x and y axis to help solve a problem". A diagram is just a picture, when you start to use vectors and axes, you just added a frame of reference to the diagram.

x-axis: According to what? Where is the axis?
y-axis: Same logic as above^^
