If you do a full reset and wipe. you do not need your previous password. When you go through the setup, it will ask you for your google username and password. This is the username on your gmail account. IF you don't remember it, you can go to and reset your password. If you are unable to do that, then you can still setup a new account and use that. In any case, it won't prevent you from using your phone. But if you do setup and use a new account, it will not sync data from the previous phone - that's by design for security. So you have two options.

Recover your original gmail account and use that

Create a new gmail account and use that

Either will allow you to use the phone.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
