In brief: Yes

Yes. Fertility can be obtained after a tubal ligation either through surgical repair (if amenable to reversal) or through ivf (tubal bypass).
Tubal reversal success will depend on health of the tubes as well as chances to conceive overall. Ivf does not require tubes and therefore success will depend on the age of the female as well as presence of other infertility factors.

In brief: Yes

Need whole history, operative note, some testing, but with new microscopic surgery it can be possible.
Ligatures, clips, cautery are techniques fir division of the tubes. If there is enough length and unscarred tube reversal is possible. Consider well why you are changing your mind-- and be sure. There are some risks.
