Can I recover or reset the password given to a P12/PFX file?

It is impossible to reset or recover a lost password of a PFX file.

Passwords for PFX/P12 files were assigned by the user at the time of exporting it from the browser.

However, if you have the access to the original system and browser used to collect the certificate, you can re-export the S/MIME Certificate into a PKCS#12 format, so that you will get a new PFX file.
