Lost my (samsung) phone and gave up trying to find it so I bought a new iPhone. Will I have the same phone number even though I can’t get the SIM card from the lost phone? Will all my data (contact list, messages, photos, etc) be transferred to the new iPhone even though the previous one was an android? I can’t find a straightforward answer online.

You need to contact Tmobile to get a new sim. The sim is your account and phone number.

As for the data if your android was backing up to your Gmail account do a Google search  on transferring data from Android to Apple.
