Yours is a very special case under the Commonwealth citizenship which would require a Committee to be constituted for your benefit and your child. I cannot advice further without going into further details.

No, you can not. Law give all equal opportunity. If you want divorce you will have to serve the opposite side at the last known address by you. Two years of living separately is good ground for divorce.
You will have to file a divorce petition in India in the nearest district court where you live. copies will be sent to otherside, if she does not appear, divorce decree will be granted. If she comes, she will contest the matter.
