It looks like you have a huge white scale problem. Cut and remove every severely affected leaf. Treat with Isopropyl alcohol and water as a spray. 50-50.

The plant is a type of kalanchoe, typically sold as a blooming gift plant.

I would get rid of it to be honest. They're sold as blooming pot plants as Lynda said. I'd start again with a nice new one.
