You likely need a new laser. I would recommend getting your System diagnosed by a professional.

The console thinks the disk is a movie and displays play and pause and chinese looking letters appear on the screen. It won't allow me to do anything

The problem you are facing is of a copied Xbox 360 game you are probably trying to play on a Genuine Xbox 360, these discs are read as a movie disk and it shows as "Play DVD".

When you try to play such discs, it would give you dvd media control bar on the bottom and the message in chinese letters is actually a message asking you to insert this disc in a Xbox 360, which is actually a Modded Xbox 360 that is required

Xbox 360 arcade pal game read error

You will get this error when your laser is in need of replacing. The other message you will get is open tray. If your system will play regular movie dvd's but not games then replace the laser. You can find them pretty cheap on ebay.

This is 99% always the case when your dvd drive is going out. You can find a replacement on ebay for under $15. Video tutorials can be found on youtube just by typing "xbox 360 laser replacement" Replace the laser and you won't have this problem anymore.

Installed new Xbox DVD ROM, but cannot read games

The DVD drives must match the motherboard that it came with. Unless you go through a very complicated re-flashing process. If the motherboard and DVD drive do not match, it will not play 360 games
