I'd use grey surface mount pvc and put a GFCI on the first receptacle. You'd run THWN wires, running NM would be near impossible.

Bah, put it on it's on 50amp circuit.

We can all agree a new circuit is best.

However, you're suggesting separating the neutral from ground on the dryer. I disagree with that. I believe it is safer that neutral/ground make it back...

Right, sorta.

I already made a 2-wide hole in the plaster for the blue box. And I want it to look authentic with the push buttons.

I guess I just don't get how fan controls work. I don't want to use anything that involves a battery or could damage the fan motor.
