I would patch it physically with something so that you have some sort of base to apply your finish plaster to. Once you do this, then make sure to use fiberglass mesh tape on the seams so that it doesn't crack later. If you have a lot to fill, use plaster of paris for the rough fill, just be absolutely sure that you don't leave any of it "high" so that it has to be sanded because it dries very quickly and is next to impossible to sand because ist is hard as rock. Then use drywall compound or vinyl spackle to feather the finish even with the rest of the wall.
