You might be able to retrieve the number using 'Magical Jellybean' or SIW.

No because the license is tied to the brand of laptop and won't activate in a different branded laptop.

Regardless, if the hard disk is OK there are ways and means to possibly recover the product key

Like #4 says, OEM licenses can't be transferred to other machines, legally or in most cases practically.
