The cost of moving a socket will depend on what kind of wall it is on, does any repair work be necessary to make good wall after it moved and also how far you want to move it.
There are several ways this can be done. either by scrubbing with hot water or wallpaper steamers can also be good for removing distemper. the best way however, to is to soften it and scrape it off.
this can be done by coating it with wallpaper paste until it can soak up no more.
paint on the paste for 30 minutes until the last coat you put on stays wet for ten minutes. leave it for those ten minutes and add some more. leave for a further ten minutes then start to scrape off with a normal paint scraper.
sealing is also an option for distemper but the surface must be completely washed down with hot water to remove all of the dusty, loose particles.
you can then use pva or artex sealer and there are also other proprietary sealers on the market.
the reality though is that there is so much work getting the distemper ready to be sealed that you may just as well work a little harder and remove it totally.
You need to mist coat the plaster first before trying to add top paint.
No you need some kind of protection like tiles, skirting boards, etc. otherwise plaster will soak up water and eventually need replacing
If you are painting wood you need to make sure that there are knotted, unde coated, etc. before top coats. you can then use gloss, satin, etc. of your choice and no skirting boards do not need to be done in same as its a customers personal choice what they want but most common is gloss
