light switch dilemma

I need to move a two light receptical to an adjacent wall because I am adding a cabinet. I would also like to change the light fixture one of these switches controls to a ceiling fan. Can I add another switch to this box? If so, how?

light switch dilemma

The electricians will need a longer description of the box--the current wiring--and how far you need to move it.
