Here's my story...
I have two wires coming from my junction box, a black and a white. I have
hooked my fan up as per directions however I would like power to stay to the
motor at all times and make the wall switch turn the light on and off. Is
this possible with the wiring configuration I have? If possible does
someone know of a site or diagram online that would instruct of different
installations? Thanks in advance.

No. The power needs to be fed to the junction box first and then to the switch.
Ask any good electrician to sketch it out for you. Better yet, pay him to do
the wiring the way you want it.
You have to run another wire and have a separate switch for the fan to do what
you want, UNLESS the current wire has 3 insulated conductors and a ground AND
one of those conductors is not being used. Highly unlikely.
The remotes come in two styles. One goes into a box on the wall ( no wiring
required, the box just holds it there).
The other uses a hand held remote that can go anywhere. They are the same

When I stayed in the cheapest** hotels in Mexico, they still had the
switch for the overhead light right by the bed. So I have a 3-way
switch for my overhead light with one switch right by my bed.
I like a permanent switch so it won't get lost, but I'd probably put
it by the bed too.
