Need to fill large gaps in corner of drywall and issues with drywall installed backwards

So I'm planning to renovate a room in my basement because it has these ugly and very large trims in every corner of the room. When removing these corner trims I found that the drywall behind them doesn't go all the way to the corners. There is about 2" of space before getting to the actual corner of the room. I'm not sure how to go about filling these spaces in.

On another note. One wall had wood textured panels that are also going to come down and be replaced with a painted wall. My original idea was to take the panels down. scrape off any glue used to hold them up and then put down a coat of mud to smooth everything out. I removed one panel and found that the entire wall was installed with the back of the drywall facing out. Is okay to continue with my plan or would mudding over the back cause unforeseen problems?

Thank you in advance for reading and taking time to reply. Not sure if I'll have time to check comments today.
