You'll have to describe how you wired the fixture, including what color wires are in each box (fan and switch).

comment two shower faucets in one water supply line
The first thing you'll want to do, is increase the size of the pipe supplying the bathroom. Then you'll have to build a manifold type setup to supply the faucets.

@keshlam The "neutral" conductor is technically known as the "grounded" conductor, which is not to be confused with the grounding conductor.

Typically when hanging things on a wall heavier than a photo, you'd want to attach them to the studs (the vertical framing members in the wall).

comment How do I wire a ceiling fan?
How was it connected previously? You should connect the new fan exactly as the old one was connected, except that you won't have to connect the blue wire (since that's for the light kit, that doesn't exist).
