Wifi Light Switch

I am installing a Wifi Light Switch. I'm more of an IT person but I should know and would like to know how to do this as well. Below are the two images. I can take more.

In the picture with connected wires, there is a greenish colored wire in the back going into where the RIGHT beige colored wire is coming from. Any help would be greatly appreciated.. I also have the push in wire connectors.
Thanks

That is two black wires. One of them is covered in paint.
One of the black is the LINE. The other is the LOAD. No way tell from picture which is which.
The two white in the yellow wire nut are the neutral.
Any green or bare wires not seen are the ground.

That cable looks like extension cord. That should not be inside a wall.

So is there a solution? I know electricity isn't really a good for trial and error
