Can anyone recognize this infection please?

Gross, dude. Is that supposed to be a tub of mushrooms? It looks like lasagna that's been left out of the fridge for a few weeks. Definitely bacterial, although I've never seen anything this overrun.
What I want to know is, a) how did you manage to get it badly contaminated, and b) why did you let it get to this stage?

its a contamination. you fucked up. clean up your technique, learn to agar, get better spawn/make better spawn

Nah, man. When you get contamination you just throw away the tub/jar/whatever. It sucks, but it's nothing to be afraid of. It's not like you'll accidentally eat a contaminated mushroom. That's no more likely than eating, say, a rotten apple.

that's a tosser, bro, I can't answer your query, but you strongly suggest you don't worry about it and just toss it unless you are actually asking for science. For all practical reasons all you have to know is that you have to toss it as cleanly and safely as possible.

It depends entirely on you. The more careful you are with your sterile technique, the less frequently you'll get contamination. 95% success rate and above is achievable with sufficient care. There's a learning curve of course, but most of the supplies are cheap, so don't worry too much about making mistakes.

Get a room/closet just for growing. Sterilize that bitch and don't enter that room as much as you can. Don't enter the room unless you took a shower.

There's no need for the growing room to have any special cleanliness requirements. As long as it's livably clean and there aren't any molds on the surfaces it will be alright. I grow my stuff in a closet (not for cleanliness, but because it's the only place my cats won't mess with the grow) in my bedroom and it's fine.
Where you need to maintain cleanliness is while inoculating your jars and/or Petri dishes. That's the moment where you're exposing a sterile environment to an unsterile one. Nearly all contamination occurs at that time.
