In brief: Same Thing

Hair replacement and transplantation are really talking about the same thing.
This procedure involves taking viable growing scalp hairs from the back of the scalp and splicing them out into individual hair units (1-5 hairs per unit) and transplanting or grafting them into the thin or bald area on the front and sides of the scalp. It is very effective. See someone for "micrograft transplants".

Sometimes "Hair Replacement" is used to describe non-surgical hair restoration options like Cranial Hair & Scalp Prosthetic devices which is a sophisticated medical grade "hairpiece" made with 3D-printing of a polymeric "second skin" and unprocessed "virgin" human hair. It stays on for weeks and you can swim, shower, be active, etc. because it does not come off until it needs maintenance.

In brief: The same

Both are describing the same procedure, where healthy hair is moved to an area of hairloss.

In brief: Hair replacement

Hair transplant is a type of hair replacement which involves transplantation of hair from the back of the head to the area of hair loss.
The hair from the back regions of the head are genetically designed to remain in place despite hormonal changes. Transplantation can be completed by strip or by [fue] follicular unit extraction. Transplantation is completed most naturally as single hairs.
