Is wall base and cove base the same thing? Everything on the shelves says wall base. Do I have any other option because is this stuff even meant to go in tubs? I think it's for interior walls, but not bathtubs. Is there any product specifically for bathtubs?

Something like this?...

Except if you look at the picture, there already is bathtub moulding and the leaks are coming from above that. I'm not sure if I can add more because of the corner bend in the moulding.

What should I use to seal that wood permanently?

This is an old pic. There is now Polyseamseal where the cracks are.

Life is a dance, you learn as you go; Not necessarily and in part it depends upon what it is composed from.Vinyl, rubber/ized and plastic can be used around a tub, with the specific adhesive.

Life is a dance, you learn as you go; You've been afforded numerous examples so it's now time to start your trial and error process, we, collectively, can't hold your hand.

Which should have been removed, the paneling thoroughly cleaned, then caulked.

That installation, is at best "ship-shod" and should have been removed.

By correctly installing, or hiring the installation done of which ever trim you elect to have installed.And periodically inspecting and correcting.
