Default Two questions about paneling?

Can someone put knockdown texture over this paneling without smoothing the seams with joint compound first?

Also, what should I patch this hole with? I'm going to texture over it anyway. So just plywood of equal thickness?

Generally, yes. The seams will eventually reappear as cracks.

Yes what? Your two sentences contradicted each other.

Yes, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.

How long will it take the seams to reappear?

Days? Months? Years?

And what would it take to fix them?

Remove the paneling, the adhesive, patch the walls and then texture.

Or, install a wainscot and moulding.

Apply any texture on a wall or ceiling will make it harder to paint, and near impossable to clean.
Trying to apply it over a smooth non porous surface is just a bad idea.
The paneling will expand and contract with temp. and humidity changes causing cracks and bonding failures.

Isn't wainscot just a panel on the bottom half of the wall?

"Patch the walls" means what exactly? Only definition I know of patch is like a drywall patch.

Wainscot is an architectural element and would hide the patch.

Removing panel adhesive often results in extensive repairs to plaster and drywall.

Something you learn from years of experience.
