Could a hearing aid help me with my gigantic hole in my eardrum?

In brief: Yes

A hole in your eardrum (tympanic membrane perforation) does not allow the normal hearing mechanism that god constructed for you to work properly, so you cannot amplify the sound naturally.
However, a hearing aid will bypass the hole and amplify the sound to get it to your inner ear and brain so you can interpret the sound which allows you to hear better.
