Here are some easy steps: https://www.hunker.com/13402594/how-to-move-a-light-switch
yes make sure all electric is off on main circuit breaker box before starting any electric work. get your self a stud finder before cutting into wall to look for/find stud to move switch box too. cutting new hole https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=diy+cut+hole+in+drywall+for+outlet+ move the switch box https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=diy+moving+light+switch+to+other+side+of+wall patching old hole https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=diy+patching+drywall
Yes. You would just have to rewire it and reattach the box it to the stud and then have to cover the hole up with drywall. You can get a drywall kit at the hardware store.
Yes you can, probably without even disconnecting the wire from the box. The easy way to patch the square hole is to cut a bit of drywall at least two inches larger than the hole. Trim off the excess drywall from the paper and then insert into the hole. It should fit snugly and then patch with the drywall compound. So much easier to do it this way as the paper overhang will stick to the other drywall and will make it easier to repair.
Yes, if you've already got good wiring skills. Otherwise I'd highly recommend an electrician as bad wiring can burn your house down.
