Why would anyone want to put hot coals on someone's head?  What exactly is Paul trying to tell us to do to those who oppose us?  Aren't we supposed to do all things in love, decently and in order?  Perhaps a brief history lesson would help here.  Quoting Kenneth S. Wuest, (1893-1962) from hIs work His Kingdom Prophecy, "In Bible times an oriental needed to keep his hearth fire going all the time in order to insure fire for cooking and warmth. If it went out, he had to go to a neighbour for some live coals of fire. These he would carry on his head in a container, oriental fashion, back to his home. The person who would give him some live coals would be meeting his desperate need and showing him an outstanding kindness. If he would heap the container with coals, the man would be sure of getting some home still burning. The one injured would be returning kindness for injury."   Listen as Pastor Billy gives us the Christian responses and guidelines to "heaping coals of fire" onto someone's head.
