I'm new to Solidworks, can you measure a planar surface to get its plane equation?

I'm fairly certain the simple answer is "no". However, if you were to draw a 3D sketch with a vector on the planar surface and two back to the origin you should be able to calculate what the equation would be.
No, SolidWorks will not report the plane equation of a surface directly in the user interface using a single command.
Yes, you can measure the XYZ coordinates of three points of a planar surface and figure its equation yourself.
Yes, if you learn VBA and the SW API, you can write a program to calculate the equation for any planar face you pick.
