Tune-up bike

So I have this generic folding bike https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00192QB4W...omponelektr-20
that I want to tune up/overhaul and repaint:

Any info on below would be highly appreciated:

[1] What is the groupset?
[2] What cables do I need if I want to replace the brake and shifter cables?
[3] Any special tools needed to remove the crank?
[4] Can I use this wheelset? If not, what can you recommend (black color)?

TIA

this bike not worth the money or hassle to upgrade.

the groupset is shimano tourney tx.
doesnt need new cables, you can use existing ones.
To remove crank you neeed square taper crankset remover tool.
fir the wheelset on the link its bmx wheel for singlespeed.
its probably doable but i dunno why would you put that wheels on

I agree on the $ part but it's kind of a personal project I want to do however crazy it may sound.

Thanks.
