I started a team a while back. I am still listed as the founder of that team, but I don't remember any of the information of the account I used when I started that account.

My picture is on the team. Is there a way to combine the accounts and take ownership? Is there a way to do this if I do not have access to the email address that I used when I started the account and team?

No, BOINC accounts (at any project) can't be merged.

Is there a way to do this if I do not have access to the email address that I used when I started the account and team?

You can access that account if you still have the old account_setiathome.berkeley.edu.xml file somewhere on your machines (in a backup). You'll need the <authenticator> to log in.

On the team page there should be a "Team foundership change" button. You can use this to request the ownership of the team. An email will be sent to the old email address and if no response is received in a couple of months, the team foundership is given to the account that initiated the request.
