Should buck-boost transformers be used to develop a three-phase 4 wire Y circuit from a three-phase 3 wire delta circuit?

No. A three phase “wye” buck-boost transformer connection should be used only on a 4 wire source of supply. A delta to wye connection does not provide adequate current capacity to accommodate unbalanced currents flowing in the neutral wire of the 4 wire circuit.
