Pull it off
If it was installed correctly, there's drywall behind it

If you want to just paint it, there's ways
It may still look like paneling, but maybe not depending on what type you have to work with

There's many, many, different kinds of paneling out there, so I can't say for sure w/o more info

The groovy '70s stuff with the brown lines, you have to sand, dust, prime (oil or shellac), fill in the brown grooves with joint compound, sand smooth, prime again, paint

If it's real textured, that's going to be a problem
