Is there a way to checkout a PR on Bit Bucket Cloud from a fork that you don't have read access to?

And I read this one, but not sure this is relevant to Bit Bucket Cloud:
Is this possible or no?
I'm afraid that at the moment this is not possible. Both links you posted in your question are applicable to Bitbucket Cloud, however, read access is needed to the fork in order to be able to fetch from it.
We have a feature request for having repository refs for pull requests, something that would allow users to fetch PRs locally without needing access to the fork:
If you'd be interested in that feature, I suggest adding your vote in that feature request (by selecting the Vote for this issue link) as the number of votes helps the development team and product managers better understand the demand for new features. You are more than welcome to leave any feedback, and you can also add yourself as a watcher (by selecting the Start watching this issue link) if you'd like to get notified via email on updates.
Implementation of new features is done as per our policy here and any updates will be posted in the feature request.
Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
Beginning on April 4th, we will be implementing push limits. This means that your push cannot be completed if it is over 3.5 GB. If you do attempt to complete a push that is over 3.5 GB, it will fail...
