If by hard reset you mean a battery pull you SMS, Email and PINs should all survive.

You can't restart it without the battery. Not even if it's plugged into the USB port for charging. You still have to have the battery. And a battery pull will not wipe any data.

You have few choices for saving SMS messages:
1. Desktop Manager - backup. You can later use ABC Amber Converter to pull them out of the backup file.
2. Forward them to another device or as email. You might need to copy/paste the contents into a new email.
3. Aftermarket Software: SMS Archiving Software

No. A reset on a BB does not touch data. A device wipe does.

To reset to factory settings you go to Options; Security options; general options; press app button and select wipe handheld.
