When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

I have one of those switches and it works quite well, allowing me to control my fan via my Smartthings hub and, by extension, my Echos.  Be aware that the switch requires a neutral wire, so be sure that your wiring includes one.

I'm not quite certain what you're asking with regards to your LIFX bulbs, but the switch will control only the fan.

The switch will turn on, off and change speeds correct?

As for the LIFX bulbs, since they don't require a hub I should be able to have them in a group and use Echo to turn them on and off I think

Yep.  It's a 3-speed switch.

That's correct.
