When migrating a physical computer to a vm, does the guest vm configuration for HDD and memory have to equal the same amount as what was on the physical computer?  Or, can these values be made smaller?

HDD and Memory size DO NOT have to equal the physical machine an can be adjusted, it's very common to reduce the size of virtual hard disk, and as for memory, it's often changed to match what memory is required and actively used by the server.

The benefit of virtualisation, is these can be adjusted, increased in the future very easily if too small.
