If you're attorney gave you advice that was erroneous that you relied on to your detriment or did something else that would entail ineffective assistance of counsel then it is possible with a writ. Otherwise you're pretty much out of luck. If you think you might be eligible for a writ, I'd call some attorneys up with the specific facts and find out for sure if there's even a slight possibility.
Only if the case is overturned on appeal. If you entered your plea more than 30 days ago, your deadline to file an appeal has expired and your only remedy would be a writ of habeas corpus. Either way you need to consult an appellate attorney.

I would also add that if you pled guilty and did not go to trial you likely waiver your right to appeal. However, you still have the post conviction writ at your disposal. You need to talk to a lawyer who does appeals, writs, or both. You may have some issues in your case that would take way too long to discuss here.
