How do I put faces on this so I can apply a image texture?

So I am trying to find a way to put faces on this ngon – Solidify remesh ? make quads ? Use it to cookie cut a mesh ?
I need to be able to UV unwrap it and place a image texture on it and be able to bend it to a curve. So it needs to have a nice mesh but I am not sure how to go about it.

So i have some confusion about faces. I think each face needs to be within a quad. When I try to grid fill it makes a mess.
this kinda goes with this other Post:

Where I basically asked the same question but in a different way. It just seam like there would be a way to create this without manually retracing it.
