Past owners painted over wood paneling, too much to scrape old paint off and want to re-panel. Do I have to remove
old panels first or can I repanel over old?

I'd probably just re-panel over the old paneling, but I would stagger the seams, so they are not on top of each other. You outlet and switch boxes will be deeper recessed with two layers of paneling, so you may need to get longer screws.
