plaster fresco finish
Fresco is a method of painting into wet plaster. You have described a texture.
When texturing a wall that has been done by someone else it is very difficult.
The hard part is that you have to first find the appropriate tools that would reproduce the texture.
Experimentation is the order of the day when trying to match someone else's work.
If you are only patching cracks it shouldn't be too much of a thing. Wet the cracks with either water or PVA adhesive and apply new plaster. You can feather the cracks with an appropriate tool to finish it up. What kind of tool? Who knows! It all depends on the texture you need to reproduce...
