For bulk content (so no manual revisions), is it possible to index/rank with GOOGLE translated content, from English to another language? What if a "pivot" language is used inbetween, e.g., English -> German -> Spanish?

Its possible, but Google now can recognize most of such contents and give a site:yourdomain = 4 result penalty, when this happens, your site is going to die, no traffic till forever, so try it yourself, don't take my words, its still possible.

i wouldn't use google translate... I had to translate a few pages recently and found yandex translate to be much better. Also, in google's eyes it will be different and yes, those pages I translated DO rank.

Yes. These do rank. In fact some of the top results in several niches I watch are auto-generated.

Creative translation prevents duplicate content,
In general, translations are protected by copyright, basic word swapping for the closest dictionary alternative can lead to Google penalty.
To avoid Google’s duplicate content penalty, you need to tell Google that certain sites are for selected territories.

Can you tell more about the 4 result penalty? I think one of my sites is affected by that.

Or is there any information publicly available? Google didnt spit out anything about that

In my opinion, translation and content spinning will be good for tier 2 backlinks but for money site, I suggest to post unique content written by quality content creator.
