Can you replace a 480-240V 3-phase motor with a single phase motor as a temporary replacement or will it burn it out?

Yes, you can, and it won't burn out IF>>> the horsepower rating is the SAME. Pay attention to wiring and motor rotation.

Also check the voltage: the motor voltage must be the same as the voltage between two hots of your 3 phase system. You will only use two hots as this is a single phase motor.

No, the voltage gap between the two voltages is too large.

frequency inverter also called frequency converter, frequency changer etc, in automation industry special for AC motor speed controlling, input 1phase / 3phase, output 3phase, the frequency and voltage are both changeable.

Just use 2 of the wires instead of 3.

Rephrase your question so that it makes sense.

It would be a 10 kVA generator.

Yes, however, the RPM will increase by 20%, if the motor is connected to a shaft or driving something that can not handle the torque, then you might run to heating issues or performance issues.

The only way to change 480 volts to 240 volts is with a transformer. A wye connection of a 480 volt three phase system can get the voltage down to 277 volts, but it is not recommended to interchange these two voltages and the equipment that they operate on.
