1) Does "get going" mean "to start or to begin doing something" ?
2) Does "to" mean "in order to"?
Can I say "There is nothing like a bar of chocolate to make you feel relaxed." ?

No, it means to trigger, initiate, switch on or start something.

2) Does "to" mean "in order to"?
It expresses purpose.

Can I say "There is nothing like a bar of chocolate to make you feel relaxed"?
Yes, you can. However, chocolate usually has the opposite effect, doesn't it? ;-)
