Just the hot. Just switch the hot.
There's a lot going on here, and I think we could spend a lot of time drawing out the threads of this design and implementation; however, to answer your specific questions: No, current will not flow back through a device from the neutral in any but the most pathological circumstances, for two reasons. First, it is incumbent upon the builder to ground all ...
The question is a bit long for me to follow fully but I will say that on a 120V circuit you are not aloud to switch the neutral. It is a code rule. You always switch the hot, never the neutral. I am not sure if your whole circuit is 120V but theres a part answer for you.
Your question is so general that it can only be answered in generalities. Assuming you are referring to lights that are turned on at specific times, there are several methods. You can use a purely mechanical timer with cams that turn on switches that, then, turn on lights. One step up is an electrical timer run by a synchronous motor that also turns on ...
Orision, My take on this is that you understand what you want pretty well, and understand electricity only at a very surface level. That's not a great mix. My suggestion would be for you to do some googling on home automation products and see if you can come up with a way to set up a system that accomplishes this with off the shelf home automation products ...
First things first: What country are you in? In the first image along the top of that terminal block you can clearly read "earth-N-3-2-1". The second image shows the wiring diagram of how to connect to these quick-wire terminal holes. Blue = Neutral Brown = Live Green/Yel = Earth Unfortunately I have no idea what the two black wires are. What is on the ...
Your first picture shows a diagram on the junction box, where two screwdrivers are prying in certain spots to get it open.
