you would still need the skills to be able to plaster what ever plaster you use.it takes a lot off skill to get it right..
one coat plaster is rubbish to be honest..
gyproc plasters are the best and widely available
it sounds like it needs se l shaped brackets or similar to be fixed to the back or sides and then fixed to the wall to keep it in shape and safe from falling over
As its on a elbow it would be best to make a hole in the ceiling where the leak is, firstly this will stop any more damage to the ceiling and secondly it will also let the water in to the bucket without soaking the ceiling.
whoever comes to fix it will have to gain access to the pipe so they will only have to make a hole in the ceiling anyway. it would be best to get someone who can then fix the water leaking and repair the ceiling as well.
First off it should be render or k rend & not plaster outside... also if it sounds hollow, it sounds to me like it has blown, which needs to be hacked off and re-done.
