I haven't used my Xbox 360 or gamer tag at all since gears of war 3 era.
But I got a new Xbox 360 E today.
Is it possible to get my gamer tag from my classic 360 & use it on my new 360 E?

Yes, assuming you can still get into the Microsoft account associated with your gamertag. https://support.xbox.com/en-US/my-account/manage-gamertag-and-profile/add-remove-profile-xbox-360

You'll then want to do a license transfer, so that you can properly use any digital content that gamertag owns. https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-360/store/download-content#84c6f651f6e8470084d9764a54721219

Okay, say I cannot access my gamer tag anymore; will I still be able to use my save data from games to continue with a new gamer tag? Or is my save data ultimately combined with my gamer tag?

MS disabled sharing saves between different accounts long ago so people couldn't artificially inflate their gamerscores. You might be able to recover your old account if you contact the help desk.

Damn it now both my Xbox360's seem use less to me. I was quite close to transferring my gamertag but it considered me suspicious enough to tell me:

It looks like someone else might be using your account
To help you—and only you—get back into ___________, we need to verify that it's yours.

What I submitted was insufficient I guess because they e-mailed me:

We recently received a request to recover your Microsoft account ________@._com. Unfortunately, our automated system has determined that the information you provided was not sufficient for us to validate your account ownership. Microsoft takes the security and privacy of our customers very seriously, and our commitment to protecting your personal information requires that we take the utmost care in ensuring that you are the account owner.

We have taken the additional step of blocking your account ________@._com until we can verify you as the account owner. This will prevent any further use of the account, and protect you from any possible malicious activity.

How do I get in contact with the help desk? E-mail or is the a number I can call to speak to an actual human? Now that my xbox live gamer tag is blocked on my original 360 & I can't even use my old save data on my new 360 your suggestion may be my last option.
