In this scene, Rosalind is, as you say, pretending to be a man.  But she is in love with Orlando and wants to find out how he really feels about her.  So her plan is not really meant to cure him, but to find out how he feels.

Her plan is that she will impersonate the woman he loves.  He will come to her and try to woo her.  She will act in such a way that he will get tired of it and not be in love with her.  Of course, this is just a ploy -- what she wants is to find out his true feelings.
