You might be able to do that, but I wouldn't bother. The disk is clearly damaged — you've at least suffered a head crash, probably worse. It's unlikely that it'll last very long without failing again, even if you manage to get it apparently working.

A normal "long" format will map out bad sectors for you anyway; if that won't do it, it mapping out more of them by hand is unlikely to work either.
