How was the paneling installed?
If it is just tacked on, it will be easy to remove. If it was glued on you may have trouble. To remove glued on paneling you need a stiff broad knife to try and scrape off the paneling and glue. The odds are you will need to do a lot of drywall repair after the adhesive is removed - possibly skim coat. Installing new drywall won't be cheaper but it might be easier/quicker. It all depends on how the paneling comes off.
