Need help installing the WYSIWYG extension on Media Wiki

Hi Team please I urgently need assistance with this I have manged to create a Ubuntu Server 14.04.01 on a vmware vm and also installed Media Wiki using the following link http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-install-mediawiki-on-ubuntu-14.04.

What I really want to accomplish is to install the WYSIWYG extension in Media Wiki a I have tons of Word docs I need to "Wiki" I have tried this but have been unsuccessful,

Will this extension allow me to copy paste text and images at the same time directly into the wiki without uploading the images , as I would really like to just copy my How-to-guide from word with all images and paste it directly in my Wiki/Project page.

Please all if you can explain to me how to do this it would really help, especially a nice step by step how to download and install the WYSIWYG extension to my Media Wiki

If your question is about this extension: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:WYSIWYG then I'm afraid that you will have difficulty finding assistance. Reading the above page says the status is unmaintained and the latest version is from 2012-04-25. Installation 'guide' is here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:WYSIWYG#Installation
