It looks to me like it's a jackpost with a kingstud on one side. The photos don't look like the beams are lapped... though they certainly could be. The "bear picture" wall appears structural so there will already be a footing below it. The "kitchen cabinet wall" may not be.

@DMoore I don't know what's in the attic just like I don't know what's in the walls. However, it's entirely possible that the attic space is large enough given the way the skylight hole looks deep. There is a wall to both sides of the post which could contain new structure. OP asked what about be involved in removing the post... I delivered. New structure above or new structure below.

@DMoore Yes and this beam relocation is quite feasible, especially if there is sufficient space in the attic.

Not with a beam inside the attic space. The only thing you would see would be a steel bracket at the junction of the beam. The Question asked what would be entailed in this structural change... my answer explains exactly that.

comment Using a Light Bulb Socket Switch to Control a Buzzer
+1 Safe, but not always functional. Some switches rely upon higher wattages running through them to function... which is why some timers fail on high efficiency led bulbs.

Island conversion is a pretty good idea. Clear up that entire "bear picture" wall.
