Hiding Mortar Repair on Chimney

I am having some issues with a chimney. I am trying to assess different things going on.

Im thinking that a previous homeowner had worn brick, tuckpointing repairs or some other issue with my brick chimney. They affixed a stone veneer facade to the old brick. Perhaps their intentions were cosmetic, an attempt at repairing whats under there or an attempt at hiding a bigger issue during sale of a house.

If that were to occur, what type of issues would I still be seeing? How would I know if the brick is damaged under the veneer? Would affixing a fašade to the old brick be considered a feasible solution to repair?

Im thinking since they slapped on this fake stone siding to the brick with cement, there would be no turning back at this point as far as removal and seeing what is under there.

Kind of a vague inquiry I know... any ideas?

Anyone care to venture a guess to my inquiries? I understand it would be just an opinion without seeing photos at least.

Just what is the problem with the stone veneer? cracking? loose? something else?
