I'm new to the crypt world and need your help.

Bitcoin Client Software and Version Number: Electrum 3.0.2
Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64-bit
System Hardware Specs: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2630 QM CPU @ 2.00GHz 2.00GHz with 8 GB RAM and 120 GB  free hard drive space

Description of Problem:
I want to change my BitcoinCash (BCH) coins and realized, that when I bought it on 23/11/17, I make a false and sending the coins to an Electrum wallet (with a BTC instead of a BCH address), where they did not arrive, of course.
Can the coins be saved and what does it costs?

Don't worry. You can easily recover your coins.

Download Electron Cash[1] (Electrum fork for Bitcoin Cash) and open your BTC wallet (where you sent your BCH by mistake) with it. You should be able to see and spend your BCH.

Edit: Ok. I just saw that your wallet has 2FA enabled. In this case, you will need to follow this guide: https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/6wf50x/recovering_your_bitcoin_cash_from_a_trustedcoin/

Smiley Muchas gracias/thank you very much/DANKE!  Smiley

It worked great. However, this is only possible with the exact ElectronCash version 2.9.3.
2.9.4 does not work (anymore).

Actually whenever you send your BCH to a BTC address you have your BCH but you can't see and spend them unless you have a BCH wallet supported wallet. Although the same termination address of BTC and BCH would have same private key but you need to install BCH supported wallet to use it.
But the main problem in your case you have enabled the 2FA which will need some additional steps to follow as already TryNinja given you the link to the description.
