Is there a how-to to prove reincarnation?

And secondly, I would like to lessen bad action from the previous life. And how do I do that?

Short answer
You are confusing belief or faith with a hypothesis.

Background
Instead of a methodological answer, this question might, perhaps arguably, be tackled better from a slightly more philosophical angle. Let's go through the relevant terminologies.

Belief is

An acceptance that something exists or is true, especially one without proof.

A related term is faith

[F]irm belief in something [often in a religious context] for which there is no proof

Indeed Reincarnation is a

Religious belief

And henceforth it cannot be (dis)proven. By contrast, scientific hypotheses can be disproven through hypothesis testing. A hypothesis being

[An] idea that proposes a tentative explanation about a phenomenon or a narrow set of phenomena observed in the natural world.

Reincarnation has not been observed in the natural world. Instead, it is based on faith in religious belief.
