The fact that you will wallpaper one of the walls, ill put straight away a full coat on all 4 walls(let to dry), ill carry on with filling all the imperfections and rubbing down the excess of filler, till we believe we have a smooth surface. Dust off!!!and one more full coat. After the second coat applied, ill take care of the wallpaper. Once the wallpaper is fitted i'll just obviously protect it and then applying the final coat on the other 3 walls

PVA may cause issues later so probably best to use a good trade paint if any imperfections call plaster back

Coat up all walls and allow to dry then fill them where required and allow to re coat once dry apply wallpaper using suitable adhesive
