Plastering and skimming are a very similar process. Skimming does offer a smooth final layer that is ready to be painted where as plaster surfaces are always rough. Skimming is usually applied to a plastered surface to smooth it out.
Plasterboard when plastered takes 2-3 days to dry but backing plaster takes 4-6 days. It is always advisable to wait at least one week before applying paint. It can even take up to a month. This really depends on the temperature of the room.
If a professional plasterer has completed the works on your walls and ceilings then it is unlikely that sanding will be necessary. Sometimes a very light sand maybe advisable if there are tiny imperfections that need removing prior to painting.
Skim coating can normally save a wall with small cracks and imperfections. If there are loose sections of plaster then these sections would need removing and a complete re-plaster of these areas will be required
