Repairing cracks in plaster walls

The walls in my house are plaster and have several large sheetrock patches covering areas where windows and doors used to be located. The seam between the plaster and the sheetrock is cracked, which makes the patch appear obvious. What can I use to fill or cover the seams so that they won't crack?

Is there such a thing as perma shield water proof sheet rock?

I've used Wonderboard, but this stuff they're showing me isn't green! I am a renter in a NYC apartment, built around 1960. I have had a leak from the apartment upstairs in my 1/2 bathroom and master bath which share a common wall. The leak comes through the ceiling in the 1/2 bath in kind of a square shape. In the master bath, the leak is only slightly apparent in the ceiling.

Putting New Wall Over Old Wall

I tore down old wood paneling and the Sheetrock behind it is somewhat damaged. I decided to just put 3/8" blue-board over the old wall. My question is. I want to put beadboard paneling half way up the wall. Should I put blueboard over all of the wall or should I just put it on the top half since the bottom will be beadboard. I just don't want a large difference in size between the paneling and new wall.
