Antoni well come to our forum,to our small group and to the art of bonsai...your tree is a ficus all right..Apparently most of us start from these trees...i can see your second photo...my opinion is,dont do nothing to the tree now...read,read and read....ficus are quite hardy but whats the rush,temperatures now dont favour repottings and in fact any major work on our trees...Do some trimming if you want and learn how to water,when to water your tree and the rest will come gradually...Wires,tools and pots only from the internet,but no need to hurry....the slower you go the less mistakes you will make and the less money you will throw away.....Well come again and any help you need we are here..
