I am very very new at this woodturning thing, but I bought a set of
woodturning chisels at a pawn shop recently and two of them didn't
have the metal at the top of the handle where the chisels goes into
it. I am sure there is a correct definition of this part but I don't know what it is.

Does someone out there know where I can get two of these metal
ends?

you can make them from copper pipe

They are called ferrules.

Find the right size pipe and cut off a 2" section, maybe 1 1/2".
Slide the pipe over the reduced portion of the wood handle and drive it down forcing the wood together around the metal. Epoxy will also help secure it if it's a "little" loose, but it should still need to be driven on. File down the wood if necessary.

Thanks for Tips Guys.

Thank you for offering up the tips about using copper pipe or some
other pipe, however what I need looks more like a small cup, larger
than a thimble, but shaped a lot like one, except for the hole in the
top where the actual chisel goes out of the handle. Looks to be
made from aluminum and pretty thin metal. Maybe 1 1/2 inches
long, tapered from the top to the bottom.

You will get more potential assistance if you post a picture so folks know exactly what you are looking for.
