If you are trying to wire up a three-phase motor from a three-phase panel which breaker and what wire type should you use?

Use a 3 pole breaker. The the wire size depends on motor amperage (or mca, which is minimum circuit ampacity). Normally in a house (dry conditions) use Lumex.

As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.

Before you do any work yourself,

on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,

always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.
