Are there any other treatment options for this disease other than phlebotomy? Is chelation an effective alternative? Is chelation safe for those diagnosed with the disorder and who are currently receiving weekly or biweekly phlebotomy?

IV chelation with EDTA does remove iron and it is a viable alternative treatment for hemochromatosis in most people with the disorder. Of course, there are many other benefits from EDTA as well. See my article on Chelation Therapy for details.
