How easy is parging over a cinderblock exterior wall?

The semi-exposed basement level of my house is ragged looking cinderblock. I would like to smooth it over with some kind of stucco or parging. Is this practical?

First I'm trying to gauge how involved it would be, labor-wise, and if I was capable of doing it without any experience. The side wall is 20'x15'. The back wall is 15'x50'. I'm still not 100% what the materials/tools necessary would be.
I'm also wondering if there's a downside to this, would it adversely affect anything (drainage, etc). I'm basically just going for a more modern a seamless look. Thanks!
