In brief: Depends

Depends on how carefully the temporary was made.
Properly made temporary crowns shouldn't cause swelling. You should see your dentist - there might be a problem with the nerve in the tooth.

In brief: Generally not

The swelling is most likely related to other wisdom teeth issues, like an abcess, an infection.

In brief: Temp crown

If you are going to have a wisdom tooth removed, there is no reason to temporarily crown it first.
Just have to tooth removed and be done with it.
