None. Nothing on their site, neither images nor guides.

What type of Dell product is it ? What is the exact problem . Does it flash USB logo or what is happening ...why don't you have an official image you can flash in fastboot / download mode ( I mean one you didn't dump yourself but one from Dell )

More info needed * but this it OT because you should abandon fastboot unless you find an unmodified image to flash

Your first step is to find an unlock code from Dell or find and follow the official Dell restore instructions and methods or MINIMUM find a stock ROM for your device .

Open a thread using the full device details and condition requesting assistance.

Already done that. Just tried to ask for help in a dedicated fastboot thread.

No.
You can boot to recovery when booted to the OS with adb reboot bootloader, but you can't boot to recovery from bootloader/fastboot.

Trying to set up fastboot on Linux but it doesn't detect the device (Dell Venue 5050). What could be the reason?
Fastboot is installed properly, rules in 51-android.rules exist.
How can I check if the device has proper permissions in Lunux? How to find the possible reason of failure?

I destroyed my system and recovery partition and cannot boot into them, and I didn't enable OEM unlocking. What should I do?

USB debugging is enabled? Not that it should matter. You can still use fastboot without OEM unlocking or USB debugging enabled.
The actual question in your first post is off topic in this thread, so really you shouldn't be discussing it here.
The best place to get help with this would be the Pixel 2XL Q&A forum, which you can find here
And good luck! I have just ordered the 2XL myself less than an hour ago
