I am not familiar with SCCM since I use KACE but info below should help you out

Also if not using already, might want to look into using Chrome Enterprise: https://chromeenterprise.google/browser/ 

1. Uninstall chrome: You can uninstall chrome with this command, Note this will uninstall all versions:

wmic product where "name like 'Google Chrome'" call uninstall /nointeractive

2. Unless you have the version 86 installer exe/msi already i dont think Google offers previous versions for download

Chrome enterpise might work with downgrading: https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/7125792?hl=en#zippy=%2Cbefore-you-begin%2Cstep-optional-contact-support%2Cstep-downgrade-chrome 

I personally have not done this so I dont know anymore info other than the link I found

3. Stop updates: you can get this done with disabling the update service. Be advised you might want to get this turned back on so that your chrome is on a more secure version in the future. 

command line i believe should be: 

sc config gupdate start= disabled

sc stop gupdate

You can get versions of Chrome that you need if you don't have them at https://www.slimjet.com/chrome/google-chrome-old-version.php

Did you deploy Chrome initially with SCCM? if yes, there will be Chrome package probably in SCCM Software Library/Application Management. If you do not have a Chrome package in there, it is easy to build. Follow the steps here https://www.prajwaldesai.com/deploy-chrome-browser-using-configmgr/ 

This package you create you can set deployment settings window where it says "Action" to deploy as uninstall or install.
