Getting ready to do mine.
Orange or yellow wire nuts are fine for #14 gauge wire. Its fine for the neutral and ground wires. The black are attached to the new switch and one neutral for the light.
All I did was disconnected the black hot wire from the 15 amp circuit breaker and pulled out of the panel box and fed it into my new switch box above. I also pulled the neutral(white) as well as the bare ground wire into the new switch box.
You really don't need to do the white or ground wire just the black hot wire.
I then added the black, white and bare copper from the new switch box back into the electrical panel and hooked up the black to the circuit breaker, white to the neutral buss and the bare copper to the ground buss.
Hope this explain more for you.
