Or, install a wainscot and moulding.
This assumes that the paneling is applied over drywall or plaster.

Are you talking about typical thin plywood paneling? How pronounced is the texture?

I would probably do a drywall patch on the hole, and if you wanted to smooth out the wall use wallpaper underliner. I wouldn't install paneling. If you want to do paneling, painting the area behind the seams a dark color to match the seam color would make any gaps that appear seasonally less noticeable. Also, if I did paneling I would not use construction adhesive to attach it. The small panel nails will do the job and when you tire of the paneling won't leave a big mess to clean up and repair.
