i am going to fill in holes and prime. should i apply a thin mixture of compound using a 1/2" nap roller and then paint over that or use one of the texture mix with the paint instead?

Yes you can apply drywall mud with a roller. You can thin it with water or even mix flat latex paint into it. I would experiment on some scrap wallboard to make sure it looks like you want it to. Once you have textured the wall you can then paint it with two coats of flat wallpaint.

I have textured walls as well, and I hate them! If we do skimming, is it likely that the thin coat of dry wall will crack? It seems it would take a great amount to cover the texture. I don't know why anyone ever did this to these walls. Also, sometimes when I touch the wall, it shocks me-Is that indicative of lead paint? Thank you!

Recently, I allowed friends to help me texture my walls. I had spent hours and days smoothing and sanding, but they were going to need light texture. I finally had it primed and ready to texture and when I came back to see what they had done they had textured it so haphazardly and extremely thick. Some parts were even an inch and a half thick. They then decided to paint of the dry wall texture mud, making the sanding process all the more difficult if I wanted to smooth it out again. I'm lost. I know that it will take me hours of more sanding and grueling labor, but I guess I was hoping if anybody knew any tricks to make it easier. I'd be grateful for any suggestions
