Friend has an upgraded PC with a HD going bad. He has XP disk but lost the product keys so I can not replace HD easily. Does MS put any of the needed info on HD? If I clone or make a backup of the present HD can I put it on the new HD easily? Could I put the cloned info on another higher grade PC? His MS office has the same no key problem.

If you have the XP installation working enough to run a small application then use Belarc Advisor and it'll show the Product Key for that HDD.

If you clone the HDD yes its easily able to be transferred onto another HDD. But a corrupt HDD will most likely not do the process accurately enough.
