i didn't quite understand this part of the
sentenceお やすみ で きて いる の です か
what is "iru no desk ka" really mean in this sentence? does it has
something relate to " ~tai no desu ga?"
can i also ask お やすみ で きてimashita ka? instead?

You use "(verb)-teiru" to talk about one's present situation.
That's why in this sentence, kiteirunodesuka
((kuru・come)-teiru) means "are you here/have you come here
on vacation?". And "nodesuka" ending makes it into a question. You
can't say "kite imashitaka" because this would mean "were you here
on vacation?", talking about the past, as imashita is the past
tense of iru.
