Can a Transformer change the incoming Alternating Current (AC) frequency, i.e. 60 to 50 Hz or vice versa?

Transformers cannot change a source voltage frequency

LV Transformers

Applies to all Low Voltage (LV) Transformer products by SquareD/Schneider Electric

Transformers are passive devices.   They provide no active electrical or electronic frequency conversion method.   Whatever the frequency of a voltage that energizes a Transformer winding will energize the other Transformer windings at that same frequency

No. That cannot be done by any Transformer or other static device. That requires and active device, such as a frequency converter, VFD, AFD, or motor-generator set.
