Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah
if a male has transitioned into a female and wants to revert to Islam, what does he do then? Does he revert and follow like a lady because now he's physically a woman and pray in the female section etc or does he pray in the male section in the masjid? Does he have to go back to being a male? What happens if he can't afford the operation to go back to a male?

Islam does away with everything that is before it. The individual would not have to change anything after accepting Islam. If she physically looks like a woman and uses female organs to function, then she will be in the ruling of a woman in all regards.
Only Allah knows best.
