    I read that Pokémon green is region locked only in Japan so any American 3ds it won’t work.

    If I was to buy a Japanese 3ds and download green to it but I live in the USA will it still work? If it will, can I take those Pokémon and trade to my American 3ds with Pokémon yellow, and then transfer to poke bank on my American 3ds then sun/moon game from USA?

    No, because your 3ds would locate you in your country rather than in Japan so you couldn't buy it. (Tried with with both an EU and US console) And it is not recommended to trade between Japanese and International Pokémon VC games, because they are coded differently. If done on real cartdridges, they could get destroyed.
