I am not at all versed with DIY but am assuming these are rawlplugs on plasterboard?

The brick is very crumbly so I am worried about removing the plugs.

I cant really afford to hire a plasterer and am hoping there might be an acceptable way of covering/flattening these before repainting.

Many thanks for your help

Photos show "nail pops," which indicate poor quality drywall installation combined with movement of the structure. DIY remedy usually entails driving a drywall screw adjacent to the pop, digging out the pop with a knife, and spackling both the screw head and the divot to a level surface before repainting.
