Actually, it is better in my opinion to go over some kind of solid surface when using paneling. It will keep your panelling from bowing. As for the base boards, your can go flush if you like, not sure how good that will look though. I would remove the base boards and run the panelling to the floor and then put the base boards back. Be very careful taking the base boards off...take your time and they will come off all in one piece.

I agree, leave the drywall. It's better for two reasons: sound blocking and stability for the paneling. Definately remove the base boards, you will like the finished look much better. Paneling has a tendancy to fray when cut, the base board will hide that and floors and ceilings are not always straight.
