Is anything going to be done for all the pilots that were either stuck on the ground due to ground stops 2hrs 30 minutes for myself or turned around back to where they came from due to handover denials?

VATUSA has already established new guidelines for FNO that go into effect in March. Review the official NOTAM here.
