Can the config of a 5510 be used on a 5505 to get our network back up after the 5510 has failed/died?

Depends on what was in the config of the 5510. If it was fairly basic (inside, outside), it shouldn't be too much of a problem. Keep in mind though that the 5505 uses vlan's so you might have to create the and adapt your config accordingly.
When using a DMZ as well you might want to check what type of software is running on the 5505. If it is a base version, you might run in to issues as that version is restricted.

It should work, you might have to go in a fix a couple things if the 5510 had features enabled that the 5505 doesnt have. Try to get the same IOS version loaded as well to try and avoid any config mismatches.
