Is there any way (or add-on) to include the full reply headers (To: From: etc fields) when replying in Thunderbird?
By default it only places a "On %date%, %user% wrote".

The reply header format is driven by reply_header_* preferences.
mailnews.reply_header_type preference is supposed to accept an additional value 4 to make the format 'user specified' - at least that's what they say in the sources:
// 0=no header, 1="<author> wrote:", 2="On <date> <author> wrote:" // 3="<author> wrote On <date>:", 4=user specified pref("mailnews.reply_header_type", 2);
However I was never able to figure out where the user defined format had to be defined at.
I recommend not bothering with preferences at all and instead using SmartTemplate - it is a great extension that does its job well.
There is a great page in the Mozilla KB about all that:
