Question Cladding inside of garage with platerboard

Hello, my first post here.
I have a garage that I'm looking to make a bit nicer and I want to put some plasterboard on the concrete walls to improve its appearance. I don't want to drill into the walls as I know the roof is asbestos cement and cause vibrations that will disturb the (intact) roof. The shape of the garage wall is funny and this might make it hard to do, this is why I'm hoping to get your opinions.

I'm working on replacing the sealant between the concrete. I'm thinking of maybe using some adhesive to stick the boards to the wall however because of the shape this might not be too easy.
So, what should I do?

Why are you replacing the sealant between the panels?

Do you plan on insulating the walls. If so now would be the time to do it.
As for attaching sheetrock gluing is about the only option that doesn't create vibrations. Initially I would avoid products from the home center until you do some research and find an appropriate adhesive. Most construction adhesives say they would work but for all the work involved I would consider more industrial adhesives for longevity.

I'm replacing the sealant as its all starting to peel off because it's quite old. I wasn't planning on insulating but I might add some in the recesses of the panels. Is there enough surface for gluing the board onto the raised areas?

It looks like you have plenty of surface area for gluing. At least for the first 5-10 years the weak link will probably be the paper on sheetrock. One of the moisture resistant varieties might be better for longevity. Best would be something like 1/2" Hardi Backer or maybe cement board. Those you might be able to stick up using thinset or a adhesive. Unfortunately they come in smaller sheets so you'd have more seams and would be more expensive.
