Above is a link to the photo I’m referencing.

I put a long crack in my wall trying to foolishly do a handstand. I’ve closed it off, but it doesn’t match the rest of the wall. Would anyone have advice as to best sand this to match the rest of the wall?

P.s. Real novice over here.

I've had no issues in the other rooms of the house but the kitchen is a bit of a nightmare:

It's really thin and consists of the yellow outer layer and a backing. The backing can be removed relatively easy but my problem is that I can barely get the front off. It doesn't seem to absorb water even though I perforated the wallpaper and used a wallpaper removal solution. There's also a texture on top of the plaster which seems like glue.

Can someone tell me what type of wallpaper I'm dealing with and what the easiest way to take it off would be?
