What are you doing? The post is too cryptic to really answer.

Why don't you just install new sheetrock over the plywood? This is a ceiling...The most visible part of a room....

The short answer is yes you can. I've done it and for the right application it works well. I lined the landing of a stair well with plywood, and treated it like drywall and you couldn't tell the difference unless you tapped it or was a kid trying to kick a hole in it....

In a ceiling application...I'd use drywall, not plywood.
