Normal decorators filler is fine for that.Leave it until it is bone dry sand and then paint over

I would paint and then replace the skirting board (if you're taking them off)

that's quite a big gap to fill

if you are sort of on my level with DIY wink, you may find it quite a challenge to get it nice and smooth.
