RA> I decided to install wall paneling in my stairwell to the basement.

If you follow the railing with moulding be sure to have enough room
for the hand around the railing! Not sure who or when it was put in
(we didn't do it) but there's a moulding here across the railing path
which I catch my hand n every so often (and my hands aren't 'thick').
As for your moulding inquiry, to get a solid strip you're probably
going to have to cut the panelling or go with drywall. (Wallpaper
with a vertical stripe pattern for the effect?)
If you go with moulding I would be inclined to have it horizontal
rather than diagonal. The steps to the basement here have a thick
(~6") molding at the first floor level. We have two different
wallpapers - one matching to the kitchen (first floor), the other the
basement level. We've had both parts matching and didn't seem to look
