I agree. Adding lights or anything else will be relatively painless with sheetrock over plaster but wood paneling is something else again. As you are covering the ceiling the panel removal can be quick and dirty. I would get a drywall installer to quote on the paneling removal and putting up the sheetrock and hauling off the paneling and scraps as one job.
