Sometimes "Hair Replacement" is used to describe non-surgical hair restoration options like Cranial Hair & Scalp Prosthetic devices which is a sophisticated medical grade "wig" made with 3D-printing and a polymeric "second skin"

In brief: Hair Transplant

Hair transplantation involves using your own hair from a donor site in the back of the scalp and moving them (usually in groups of 1, 2, or 3 hairs) to areas of thinning or lost hair at the hairline and top of the scalp.
Filling in with these transplanted hairs looks very natural and can help with both female and male pattern hair loss.

In brief: Depends

If you are referring to surgical procedures those terms are basically synonyms.
However, hair replacement is a broad term that could include such things as wigs, etc.
