You'll find that the pump sprayer ineffective, you really need to saturate it. One possible problem would be if the popcorn has been painted already that would prevent it from readily absorbing the water.

A floor scrapper would work if your at a right angle.

Are you aware of this?
Drywall Lift | Rent Drywall Jack - Sheetrock Panel Lifts | Home Depot Tool Rental
You can rent them at any tool rental place, not necessarily a big box store like HD. They are typically not expensive to rent, and it would allow you to move the full panels in place on your own. I think using something like this to put those panels in place would give you a nicer look in the end than making your own ceiling tiles. I sounded like you were talking about the wood paneling, not drywall, but this should still do the trick.
Good Luck!
