Having removed a wall, coming out perpendicular from the one pictured, I now have a wall with a decent area (plastered) and a smaller area with 2 door linings...
As you can see from the picture, the finish on the big area is about 10mm proud of the door linings, but only about 8" to blend it in.
Not over keen on replacing the door linings, millions of cut nails into thermlites...

Is it a viable option to glue and pin on a piece of 25x10 or there abouts timber, plane and sand flush with the inside, then replaster to the relevant depth to keep the wall flat...

Yes definitely: and if it's not the door hanging side I probably wouldn't even try and keep it flush, set it back 3mm and save yourself the trouble of planing it flush. Definitely glue it though, otherwise it'll shrink and always show a joint, (that'll need filling).

No, its not the hinge side. Needs to be flush, surely, so when the architrave goes back on it looks right.

What I do in this situation is use what I call a “full stop” I extend the door stop so it sits in line with the wall and the facing(architrave) will sit/nail on the edge(leaving a 2mm list) which covers the void and sits flush with the wall on closing side.
Hope that makes sense!

If you're re-using the old arcs then yes, but, there should be an 8mm quirk from original door lining to the arc so losing 3mm of that wouldn't matter. Unfortunately a lot of chippies? just put the arcs on at what sometimes seem like random spacings.

So instead of a bit of 12x32 doorstop, use a bit of 12x70 (or whatever i need) as the door stop, covering the whole inside of the lining....?

Yes,we have to do it often when fitting new linings to old openings as we generally buy them at 95,120 or 145 wide. We just go to nearest small size and put full stops on.
