Citristrip for sure to remove sticky stuff. It also works good on the wall paper it self but you will need a second coat to get the sticky stuff.

If you use the search function you will have hours of reading on interior painting.

There have been successful applications of both oil and acrylic finishes and the key factor in success seems to be ensuring that you use compatible primer and paint systems and prep, prep, prep. Our interior looks 1000% better than when we purchased it but it took lots of work.

good luck
