Replacing a switch how

Easiest way is to follow the old switches wires. However, if that is not possible. In electric circuits, White is always neutral, green is always ground any other color could be whatever. Most likely they will be hot. PLEASE NOTE-- This is only true with electric wires. Electronic wires will be different! It is important to understand that and know which code the fan is following. Most fans will follow the electric code but you best find out first! To wire this up, you will hook the hot wire to the center contact of the switch and the wire going to power up the fan will be on the other contact. The neutral should be straight wired through, not to the switch! I would also advise going to a hardware store or store that sells electric supplies and see if they have a how to book on wiring fans etc... That would be the wisest starting point!
