Full bridge switcher is the usual topology for bipolar peltier supply, it's usually simpler to design it for symmetrical current although dick_freebird is of course right that heating current demand can be expected much lower than cooling current.

Your schematic appears to be a flyback. current flow in the secondary is normally in one direction. This means the output stage is designed differently than the conventional tapped secondary bipolar supply.

I presume standard 5V transceivers, although specified only for 4.75 to 5.25 voltage range will work well at 4.5 V.
Cheapest are bipolar devices like SN75176, but they have uncomfortable high quiescent current. My standard general purpose transceiver is CMOS SN75LBC176.

A buck-boost inverts supply polarity. Output is referenced to ground. That will give you -12V. You can use an ordinary buck converter to get +12V. Then you'll have bipolar +-12V, both referenced to common 0V ground.

An ordinary bipolar transistor needs a base current of 1/10th the collector current for it to saturate well and not get hot.

BLDC's often use dual full bridges like a DPDT switch which reverses polarity of single supply or applies zero current with both at V+ or both at 0V.
Usually each bipolar or "Double Throw" switch or " half-bridge" is a MOSFET pair.
A full bridge switches both ends of the coil.
There are tons of BLDC web links.

This depends on a few things.
For bipolar mirrors, you'd need base current buffering
to keep any decent fidelity (figure each dependent
"steals" 1-2% of pilot current, as does the primary).
Then buffering puts you down to sub-%-per-stage.
Beyond that you probably need more gain and replica
feedback to get (...)

You are looking for resistance rather than "impedance". Rb has been used with classical bipolar OPs to cancel the addional offset caused by input bias current. As already mentioned "input balancing" could mean a lot of different things, I won't use the term here. Rb = Ri||Rf is the right value. In case, I would talk about source resistance (...)

Saturation (or the lack) - to get tolerable Vce on a bipolar
you have to load up the base with charge (current) and this
then has to be turned around, but has a long storage time.
bipolars are real fast to turn on. It's turning off that's slow.

Use a MOS transistor instead of a bipolar for switching applications.MOS transistors have much less Rds resistance and drop-out voltage across D-S is much less than bipolars.

In a practical sense, if both time constants, T1, T2 are greater than the triangle ramp period, then the ripple may be straightforward. V=I*ESR , where ESR = R1//R2. The voltage ripple is regardless of value of capacitor.
With source current suggested as bipolar triangular , this results in triangular voltage ripple.
