No, the PIN of each BlackBerry is unique to that specific device. It's hard-coded in from the factory. As for restoring contacts, that can only be done through a backup. If you have a recent backup (on your pc or through BB Protect) you can restore your contact list from that. Without the contacts having been backed up though there is no way to get them back.
