can I copy all the effects I have on one layer and apply them to another layer?

Yes. In the Layers panel, Cmd+Click/Rt-Click on the effect-bearing layer's fx icon and choose Copy Layer Style. Then Cmd+Click/Rt-Click on the target layer and choose Paste Layer Style.

All that did was copy my blending options over. I am trying to copy effects like invert and hue/saturation over to another layer

Ah, well apparently, we're mixing terms. Hue/Sat, Invert, and other operations found on the Image > Adjustments menu are not generally referred to as "effects," so I misinterpreted your intentions.

To reuse an adjustment, you would want to apply it using an Adjustment Layer, which could subsequently be copied like any other layer, or moved/grouped in the layer stacking order to affect additional or select pixel-content layers. If you apply an adjustment by invoking its dialog via the Image > Adjustments menu, it's usually a one-off commitment that can't be recalled, except in cases where the particular adjustment, (i.e., Levels or Curves), dialog includes Save and Load buttons.
