I doubt anyone would put paneling over drywall. One of the main reasons people like paneling is because you don't need to tape and mud. That and that the 1960s/70s rustic look.

You may be able to attach the drywall to the same "studs" that the paneling is nailed to. It would be a good time to clean the foundation walls and insulate.
