Question confused

I have a wall which had z-bricks on it, which when removed have torn some of the drywall. There are patches where it is torn to the grey layer beneath.

Do I sand away uneven spots, then seal it or do I sand away then just apply joint compound. I want to texture the wall slightly and then paint it.

On the other walls in the same room, I removed wallpaper and am left with a shiny layer that looks like old paint (primer, am I right). In some areas a couple of layers of this "paint" peeled away. Do I sand them and apply joint compound, then primer, then paint. I want a texture on these walls too, then paint it.

THis is all in the same room. I want a faux finish- to hide any flaws, so that's why the texture would make it a bit easier.

Thanks for any help
