Single phase utility supplies do not provide the phase profile required by three phase loads

Three phase loads must often be serviced by a single phase utility supply
No, a static device, such as a Transformer, can not generate the phase angle differences required for a three phase output. To create the two additional phases requires some sort of active device, of which a phase converter is one example.
