First, turn off the circuit breaker. The three wire bundle should be the incoming power, the four wire bundle should be going to the fixture. Using a duplex switch (one with two toggles), the incoming black wire goes to one side of the switch, the outgoing black and red wires go to separate terminals on the other side of the switch. The whites are connected together. The Grounds (or bare copper) are connected together and to the switch ground screw. Hopefully both the outgoing read and black were connected to the old switch or you may have to rewire the fan to wire up the fan and light separately.

As I understand it you have a live circuit going to a light fixture that had a switch built into it. You have removed the fixture and now you want to run this wire to another location and install a switch in the circuit.
You will be extinding these two wires (white and black + ground) to the new location. No problem ... Somewhere between where you start and where you finish, you will break the black wire and install a single pole switch. All connecctions must happen inside a electrical box.
So, install the new wire in the box where you will start your extension. Run to the new switch box. You dont even have to cut the white wire. You will wrap the green or ground around the ground screw on the switch, Cut the black wire . put one end under one side screw, put the other end under the other side screw. From this box run your wire to the next box where you will install your fixture.
If you are using metal boxes, they must be grounded to the circuit. You can use pig tails for this, Best deal is to use plastic boxes that dont require grounding.
I hope this answers your question
