Thank you for photo and question, Hair Transplant can cover/ hide burned scares, you will have to consult a hair transplant surgeon for exaimination.
Hair transplant can sometimes help hide scars and burned tissue. However you would need to see a doctor for a proper examinatio

It's though to see on the pictures, but part of the answer would depend on how much donor region you have. In areas that have been scarred, vascularity is less and the yield of the transplant would be a bit less. Basically we would need to see if your available donor region can supply the areas that you would like restored to your density expectations.
However based on the pictures, and considering how young the wounds still are, it appears as if your follicles have not been completely destroyed. An option to consider is use of PRP for multiple reasons, one of which being skin repair of your scalp and follicular rejuvenation that comes along with the therapy.
Furthermore another options for you that might serve multiple purposes could be the use of concomitant adipocyte and mesenchymal stem cells along with PRP to rejuvanate your skin/scalp. If it does this do a great degree, there is potential for some follicles to return.
It is still very early and I would recommend you allow your healing to continue as you look at restorative options.
Wish you the best,
