Does bwameth accept bam (unaligned) type as input or I will have to convert unaligned bam to fastq (samtools fastq bam) to use it as input?

No, it's a bwa mem wrapper for bisulfite data essentially and bwa mem accepts fastq only.

    $\begingroup$ You can pipe uBAM to bwamem with samtools fastq in.bam | bwa mem -p - > out.sam, provided that paired-end reads are grouped by name. $\endgroup$
