    and with those words of wisdom I think the thread has run its course as the OPs question was answered pages ago
    At my age, I'm accustomed to restaurants asking me to pay in advance, but now my bank has started sending me their calendar one month at a time.

    You might be able to connect a three phase motor to both lines and to the neutral and it might run, but you have horrible voltage balance and it probably destroys that motor in no time, unless you do some transformation before connecting to the three phase motor.
    That really depends on the voltage you need. The two ungrounded conductors from the 208Y/120 system combined with the neutral form a perfectly good corner grounded 120V delta. It is, as you note, an open delta though.
