I agree that's the best way, unfortunately, NOT something for someone who admits "I am not very plaster good."

For someone of that admitted lack of skills, I would suggest:

For where the the skim coat is coming off, scrape all the loose stuff and use JC (Green lid) to build out and feather with old.

For where it's down to the wire lath, square off the hole to the studs and screw sheet rock to the studs. You may have to shim the rock out so that it is even with the existing skim coat.

Paper tape (or mesh if you think it's better) and JC the joint.

Plaster is wonderful material to work with. I had a few jobs like that in the 70's. I decided to "learn on the job". Those experiences made me watch REAL plasterers, read a lot about the theory and chemistry of plaster, and practice at home until I knew better what I was doing.

Scrape loose to sound, apply hot mud such as durabond flush to substrate, apply fiba fuse where old meets existing, float hot mud over and even, follow up with another tight coat feathering it out, lightly sand and then do your thing.
