Drain soaked sticky rice and tie in a bundle in cheese cloth. In a large pot, steam rice 12 minutes. Remove from pot and allow to cool before removing from cheesecloth.
Meanwhile, slice acorn squash into 2” chunks. Arrange on a half sheet tray. Drizzle with vegetable oil, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then transfer to oven and roast until tender and golden, 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
While squash is roasting, heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over high heat until shimmering. Add scallion whites to skillet and cook just until beginning to soften, about 1 minute. Add cooled rice and stir to coat completely. .
Add xo sauce to skillet and cook until fragrant, stirring until thoroughly combined. Add ½ Cup of water to pan and cook, stirring constantly, until water has evaporated and rice has loosened. .
Stir in tamari, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Continue cooking until rice is golden and crispy in places, 3-4 minutes more. Add roasted squash and half of scallion greens to skillet and toss together, along with sesame oil. .
Transfer to serving dish, then drizzle with additional sesame oil, garnish with remaining scallion greens, and serve.
