You spawn a new haproxy instance yourself, and pass it the PID of the process you want to replace:

      haproxy -f haproxy.cfg -sf $(pidof haproxy)

The new instance uses SO_REUSEPORT to attach to the same port, and then sends a FINISH signal to the given PID to gracefully shut down the running instance.
