Best to scrape as well as you can on the areas that may have superglue. This kind of thing may bleed through a few layers of latex. Happened to me.

You will definetly need to wash the walls with clean water several times to make sure all the DIF and glue are gone for the same reason.

Skim coat the area with Drywall compound. Buy the big bucket, it is worth the $10. Sand and reapply to hide any transitions.

Paint.

Oh, and remember, older homes always tend to have noticable knooks and crannies in the walls, so you may not have to worry too much. A thick primer may blend the textures.
