Can I use half and half as a substitute for milk?

Yes, but half and half has more calories and more fat. I'd use the same ratio really, if it were me. Or maybe 2 1/2 cups half and half and 1/2 cup water. It's not likely to fail miserably whatever you do.

My recipe calls for 2 cups of scalded milk. I have only 1/2 & 1/2. Does the 2/3 rd ratio of cream plus 1/3 water work for scalding milk?
