My bathroom is so gross.

I bought a house last year that I've been continually remodeling & up next is the bathroom in the basement. However, the walls really confuse me. What are my options? Any suggestions?

The bathroom in our basement is weird and gross. It has strange wall panels and a hideous metal shower enclosure. I'd like to start renovating it, but I'm really confused by the walls. Are these things just patterned wall panels over concrete? Also, some of the panels near the shower stall have come completely off the wall. Could someone semi-handy, but not super
-handy replace these panels with something else (no idea what) without outside help? Do I need to worry about asbestos or insulation? The house was built in 1935.
I'm relatively sure that between my SO and I we can figure out how to dismantle and remove the shower enclosure, but I've never encountered one made of metal before. If you have, is there something that I should be aware of? My SO installed a vanity in our upstairs bathroom so I trust him to be able to figure out turning off the water and such.
Any help is appreciated!
