I have chronic periodontitis, what should be the treatment plan for this, can it be reversed?

Chronic periodontitis means severe inflammation and bleeding gums that occurs due to food accumulation in gums due to improper oral hygiene, it cannot be reversed. Get a deep scaling and cleaning done from a dentist, also start brushing after each meal.
