cutting plaster wall

I have what I think is plaster walls. Where the trim is removed it looks like concrete. In one spot where I can see the back of the wall I don't see slats, but what looks like some kind of drywall.

Is this plaster on drywall? If so how hard is it to cut a square hole in it? I figure drywall would okay, but not sure on the plaster. I'd like to extend a single receptacle box to a double so I can fit in a phone jack/cable plug. Currently, the cables come up through the floor. I'd like to do the same thing in the other bedroom, it's got an old style four prong jack.

Thanks guys. Now to figure out which receptacle. As far as phones, the hallway has a little built in section for a phone. May have see if I can pickup an old style phone to put in there.
