That's putting it mildly. As the article says:

That is a very serious business. So in order to do what you propose you would have to:
1. Find someone who is happy to donate not only their follicles but their bone marrow!
2. Go on immunosuppressant drugs to weaken your immune system
3. Get your scalp cut up WHILE ON IMMUNOSUPPRESSANT DRUGS (see a potential problem there?)
4. Get a bone marrow injection
5. Stay on the drugs for a while (weeks/months?) while the bone marrow does its thing
6. Pray it actually works
It might be worth the risk for a life threatening condition like kidney failure but I don't think you'll find any doctor who would perform such a process for balding.
All that said... Jahoda actually showed in 1990 that dermal sheath cells can be transplanted to another person without rejection. He grew one of his hairs on his wife's arm. So in that sense you could, theoretically, extract a follicle with FUE from a non-balding person, dissect it to get the sheath cells out, and implant them into bald scalp. You wouldn't get rejection and in theory you would grow hair that would have the other person's DNA mixed with your own.
The problem is you could only really do it one follicle at a time and to dissect every follicle would take too much time. You also can't control the direction of growth.
Hence why they started trying to just dissect a few follicles to get the cells and then multiply them to produce many millions of cells.
And then the argument is you don't even need to use another person's hair, you can use your own. And bingo, you have Aderans/Replicel.
Unfortunately, my understanding is that the multiplied cells lose the ability to induce hair growth, which is why we're more than two decades on and still don't have a cure. That is one of the biggest barriers facing Aderans and Replicel.
