Variable Speed Control for Fan

I have an older Hunter Fan (when they were still built in the US by Emerson Electric) equipped with a pull chain three speed switch. Can it be converted safely to a variable speed control wall switch? If so, how?

I have the fan completely disassembled and it has a fairly good sized capacitor.

1) is there a switch in the wall now for this fan?
If so simply put the fan back in the ceiling, set it on High speed and buy a fan speed control at the store. Swap out the regular switch with the new speed switch and your done.
2) No switch now.. more involved.
