Assuming control of both House and Senate, but this is a bill opposed by opposition, and leaving aside fast-track procedure what is the fastest this can be done?
I am thinking this is dependent on gag rule?

Very, very fast, assuming you have >50% of the house supporting you, >=60% of the senate supporting you, and the president supporting you
First somebody must draft the law, pass it in the house, pass a cloture vote in the senate, pass the bill in the senate, and then have the president sign the bill. Assuming everybody is on board with the bill and knows to rush completion that way, it will probably take multiple hours. This is because it will take time to get everything done, and all of the aforementioned steps to getting the bill passed take time in between them, so in reality it will probably take a while.
