For educational purposes Please take the following hypothetical situation

System A ( Micro A is connected with Wi-Fi module A)

System B ( Micro B is connected with Wi-Fi module B)

System A can send data to System B. which protocol can be used, TCP/IP or WiFi between System A and System B?

I just want to understand when WiFi protocol will be used and when TCP/Ip protocol will be used

TCP/IP can be used with any physical layer. You can use TCP/IP with a UART/RS-232 connection if you desire.
I'm not certain what you mean by WiFi protocol, but you can probably pass TCP/IP packets over that physical layer as well.

System A sending or receiving data to system B over protocol.

some protocols like TCP/IP, WiFi.

Is it the Wi-Fi module or the protocol or both?

Can two Wi-Fi devices send or receive data over the TCP/IP protocol?

WiFi operates at the physical and datalink layers, TCP/IP operates above that. WiFi and TCP/IP are not alternatives for each other.
