Touchback and Free Kick OOB

Can Team R take the ball positioned anywhere between the hash on both situations or just with a touchback?

No, a free kick out of bounds is placed at the hash on the side it went out on if the receiving team chooses to take the ball 25 yds from the kick or the result of the play.

The receiving team can ask to have the ball placed anywhere between the hash marks after a touchback.

Rule 6-1
ART. 8 . . . A free kick shall not be kicked out of bounds between the goal lines
untouched inbounds by R. If it is, R has the following choices:
a. Accept a 5-yard penalty from the previous spot and have K rekick.
b. Put the ball in play at the inbounds spot 25 yards beyond the previous spot.
c. Decline the penalty and put the ball in play at the inbounds spot.
