I have about a 1/4 to 1/2 inch gap where the drywall meets. Would I be able to just put joint compound in there? I was told to use plaster of paris because it is a bit harder and might not crack as easily. What alternatives do I have to filling the gap and making it look pretty without ruining the ceiling.

If you decide on a plaster product use a durabond product. Number indicates dry time. The stuff is awesome and in does not contract like drywall compound. You probaly need some kind of tape joint ans the walls and ceiling joist and moving in different directions while exlanding and contracting. Good lick and i hope my advice help if not disreguard.
