drywalling over vaulted cedar wall

by Deb

I have a dated cedar feature wall that I would love to have gone. There is drywall under the 1/2" thick tongue and groove cedar planks, but they were glued and nailed, so I don't think removing the cedar is an option. The resulting ripped paper would likely make the repairing of the drywall not possible. Is it worth trying, or should I go straight over it with a thin drywall board?

The ceilings are vaulted @ 8ft to 12ft, and the ceilings are finished with a texture, and now I'm realizing that while taping the ceiling to wall joint may be difficult to have it blend in with the rest of the ceiling.
If boarding the walls again is the best option, would you start at the ceiling and work towards the floor horizonally placing the boards?
Is hitting the studs with the screws crucial? It's going to be difficult to find the exact spot with wood covering everything.
Help please! I'd really appreciate any advice.
