The well pump receptacle would be where the pump to provide water to the house would plug in.

Impossible to properly wire it using the materials shown.

Replace that piece of 14/3 between the switches with a piece of 14/4.

Then you might be able to make it work....

PROVIDED that the "well pump" motor is small enough to operate on a 15 Amp circuit, with the other loads present.

Are you sure you don't mean SUMP pump rather than well pump???? Most well pumps are 240v, and are hard-wired, while sump pumps are 120v, and are cord-and-plug.
