rotted floor joists in crawl space

I own an older home with hardwood floors. The floor joists
under the bedroom floor are totally rotted out. Can this
be repaired from the crawl space using a jack. How much
space is needed to repair from underneath. We don't want
to rip up the floor if we don't have to. The joists are
18" on center. Should we use pressure treated wood. Also,
should all the joists be replaced or just the rotted
ones.
