Best paint for old stone and mortar basement walls

What's the best paint product to put over our old stone and mortar basement walls. Some of the walls have old paint not sure what type, some have old thoroseal paint, and some are unpainted.

On the unfinished walls i will use thoroseal, I think thoroseal can be put over old thoroseal but not over old paint in general? Correct?
What's the best basement wall paint or stain to use over the old generic wall paint

Thank you

I've never used Thoroseal so I can't answer that part.

Most any latex paint should do fine providing there aren't any moisture issues.
