Exercise: Lack of exercise and sedentary lifestyle is associated with increased risk of heart disease. Evaluation by a cardiologist prior to starting exercise would be advised. Once you start exercise, motivation may follow.

Yes.: See my previous answer to your question. Exercising aerobically, not just walking, can actually lead to plaque "regression", along with medications to lower BP and cholesterol. Lack of exercise can make you depressed, conversely, exercise will give you more energy. Lack of exercise will lead to plaque "progression" and worsening of the 60% blockage.
