Paint scraper and then sand/compund as needed. You could wet the wall to make the scraping easier.

You could just sand through the paint, but that's a chore.

If there's no high areas and just air holes a very thin layer of spackle will fill them. Sand again with a fine sanding spong in a ciruler motion, then prime and paint.
