I'm not sure I understand what you mean

Most any size drywall can be installed over paneling with 1/4" drywall being the thinnest. The majority of paneling is 1/8" thickness although some of the older better paneling might be 1/4' in thickness. A mud joint between wood and drywall is destined to crack.

They make a u shaped edge that wraps around the drywall and protects the edge from chipping. This sounds like what you are trying to do. They carry it at Home Depot.

You need tear away bead or L- metal. I like tear away better. It only comes in vinyl so glue it on with spray glue.
