Does an electrons quantum numbers give you the ground state electron configuration?

Yes, when following Pauli's and Hund's rules for determining electron configurations, the ground state will be achieved. The quantum numbers of each individual electron will be unique to that individual atom. However, altogether the configuration of the electrons which can be represented through the quantum numbers will reflect a ground state configuration.

Yes, the quantum numbers tell you things like which subshell and orbital, using this information you can know the electron configuration.
