What are the necessarily ecdsa values needed to recover the private key of a p2pkh address.

A key is recoverable if two signatures are created with the same R value.

When same address is reused numerous times to receive bitcoin what threat does it pose?

It leads to some loss of privacy, allowing different payments to be linked together.
