I was able to successfully perform HTTPPOST using AMPscript with a header, but when I attempted to perform HTTPGET with a header, it is throwing a error. I referred the HTTPGet documentation which says header value cannot be passed.
Can this be done?

You can’t set headers in HTTPGet requests using AMPscript. You will need to use SSJS, or a combination of SSJS and AMPscript (if you want to set the retrieved content as an AMPscript variable).
The following code will make an HTTPGet request with a header and set the response as an AMPscript variable:
<script runat="server"> Platform.Load("Core","1"); var url = "https://httpbin.org/anything"; var headerNames = ["Accept"]; var headerValues = ["application/json"]; var response = HTTP.Get(url, headerNames, headerValues); Variable.SetValue("response",response.Content); </script> Response: %%=v(@response)=%%
