Approach type question

Is a transition request required for a teardrop approach, especially a short final one?

Do you mean a VOR DME approach?

If you’re planning on entering the pattern on the opposite downwind, for lack of a better term, to where you’re flying from, then yes. There’s no other way to let Tower know you’d want left or right downwind.
