One is Vanguard BH-50 ballhead.

The other ballhead is Sirui C10S.

I like the features on both tripods. For a travel tripod, nothing comes close to the Sirui.

The quick release plates should be interchangeable.  The Sirui Clamp has a safety pin feature which stops the plate from sliding.  Is that what is causing the problem?  Can you fit the Vanguard plate into the Sirui head if you hold the pin down?

How are they incompatible?  Are you unable to use either plate on the other head, or is the incompatibility one way only, e.g. can you use the Sirui plate on the Vanguard head or vice versa?
