You will have to remove the baseboard, install the sheetrock and then reinstall the baseboard. With paneling being thinner than sheetrock, what they did was correct but you need more space now. Since you are adding thicker material, you will probably have to trim the ends of the baseboard to get a proper fit. Good luck.

Your door jams may be out of whack with the new drywall as well.
