I recently removed tile from my bathroom wall and I need to remove the plaster behind. The existing tile did not go to the ceiling I am wondering is it possible to drywall that have and mix it with the plaster or should I re-plaster all the walls? Or would it be a wiser decision to drywall the whole bath?

Question is a little confusing. Are you asking if you can drywall along side plaster walls? The answer then would be sure. I did it in my own bathroom not long ago. The important thing is simply that you make sure you fur the drywall out to be level with the plaster before taping and mudding your seams.

Yes, you can use joint compound over the plaster areas. Done it alot. Even over areas where tile has been ripped off in bathrooms, just like you described. Tho, I would suggest that you use the ready-mix kind . That is the durabound, that is purchased in the bags and you mix with water.
Get the 90 minute kind, so you have plenty of time to work with it.
You will need to do several coats to get it right.

Good luck
