In additional to play with wet-dry soil can I use something else to help my chrysanthemum? Can I use Neem Oil on foliage?, or Trichoderma for soil?

Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see the issue. The correct actions to take will depend on what is causing the wilting.

Since most of the Trichoderma species found in soil are, also, found in ambient air, chances are that it is already present in the soil. Adding any more will only be beneficial to an otherwise healthy plant.

In the meantime, here are some articles that will help:
