eBay refunded a purchase to a closed PayPal account that I no longer have accesss to and it says I can’t recreate an account because bank account has been linked to the maximum amount of accounts.

If you funded the original Paypal payment to the seller from your bank account or a card then once marked refunded/completed it will automatically go back to that bank account or card.
Normally it can take a few days up to a week to go back to a bank account. Paypal say allow 30 days for a card (1 billing cycle) but its rarely that long.
(Can vary according to country though).
