Default best set-up for wainscotting

I'm a newbie to routing - I have had experience (but not professionally) in home remodeling and reconstruction, but not much in any sort of fine woodworking. I'd like to add wainscotting to my own house, either with flat or raised panels ( or maybe no panels but my wall quality is not great (old house). I would like to cut the rails and stiles myself. Maybe make the panels if I decide to use them. I was wondering what type of set-up would be best? I see there are plunge routers and fixed routers, and some are more powerful than others. What would I need to do the job? Would I need or would you recommend a router table? It seems that it would make work much easier and improve the quality of the product. Thanks in advance for your for your suggestions.

I started a wainscotting project and have only used a 1/4" cove bit so far. Rails, stiles, and panels out of mdf. Did some parts freehand and others on the table. Smaller parts work best on the table.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
