Hi, you could fill it in with either filler and sand it or you could blend it in with plaster ready for painting it.

Between the plaster on the wall and the ceiling? As long as it's just in the plaster and not a sign of structural movement it's fine like that, only a decorative issue.

You can either put new coving up to cover the gap or you would need to fibre tape the joint along the ceiling/wall....apply pva along both ceiling and wall area that has to be patched in....while pva is tacky apply multi finish to ceiling and wall....run an angle trowel along to give you a sharp corner....polish to a finish

It can be filled with easy fill but depending on how fussy you are or how much your willing to spend whether you skim whole walls or not your choice

You will need to skim ceiling and walls and scrim tape the gap to do it right or you could scrim tape gap and have it plastered feathering in to ceiling and wall but you will notice the line where new and old plaster meet
