You can grow a Bottle Palm in a container. This Palm is quite slow growing and does not have a large root ball.
For this reason I do not see any need to plant the Bottle Palm in the manner you describe.
This type of planting is done for invasive root systems that the Bottle Palm does not have.
Here is a link with more information.

Unfortunately I cannot identify the issue from these images.
Inspect the fronds, the trunk and the soil around you.
You can have a soil test performed to help determine if the palm is lacking nutrients.

I'm listing these links to help you.

It looks like, either, a bottle palm, or its cousin the spindle palm. You can ask your local extension service, and they can help you figure out exactly what this is. This link will help you locate the nearest one to you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/extension-search/

A google search of "palm tree fertilizer" will take you to many results. It is your choice from there.
