Hello and welcome to HCM,

Although there is no contraindication for any specific diet after typhoid, genera instruction is to avoid heavy / spicy food since it is an infection which may affect intestines.
Slowly shift from easily digestible substances like boiled/ liquid food to complex. You can start by taking non vegetarian soups and as you feel your digestive system is capable to take more you can shift to less spicy other non veg dishes.

Next there is no contraindication to having kid, or no effect of typhoid on sperm count whatsoever.

Hope I helped
