Whatever you do, it's gonna cost
Keep that in mind.
Whether it's cash payment for materials and/or labor, or payment in time and effort, you're going to have to pay.
Question: what'sthe paneling? If the paneling was installed by a former owner, there's likelybe perfectly good drywall under it.
If the paneling is directly attached to the studs, the taking it down offers an to put in new electrical outlets, upgrade electrical wiring, install wiring for TV's, computers, and sound systems, check the plumbing, and install soundproofing. As well as dusting the wall cavities with borax dust to keep carpenter ants at bay.
I'm only familiar with the Canadian electrical code, which specifies an outlet every six feet of wall, not counting where there are windows. This is grossly inadequate. You want enough outlets so you never ever have to use an extension cord.
I can understand the desire to salvage the knotty pine - you can always try selling it here on Craigslist - but if, as you say, you're sick of it, preserving it is entirely secondary to getting rid of it.
Incidentally, if you put up drywall over the paneling, none of your electrical outlets will be at the surface of the new wall.
If, as you say, the paneling is throughout the house, replacing it, or even just covering it is a major job. Don't just jump in feet-first; plan the project very carefully so you don't suddenly realize that, say, all the bathrooms are out of commission at the same time.
