I would suggest a high adhesive oil based primer such as Kilz and a quality wall paint, the oil based primer will seal the wallpaper so the paint does not soak through and loosen the wallpaper paste. Make sure the paper is adhered well itself, clean thoroughly, lightly sand the paneling with a 220 grit sandpaper for adhesion and smoothness, remove dust and prime, after dry lightly sand the paneling one more time for smoothnes and remove dust, at this point you can caulk the paneling where needed (joints and corners) with a PAINTABLE latex caulk, smoothing with a wet finger and clean up any mess or access with a damp rag, allow to dry and paint with 2 coats of quality wall paint.
