I tried both signer.sendTransaction({ to, value }); and provider.send("eth_sendTransaction", [{ from, to, value }]);, and neither worked for me.

Would be great if your answer could also include an account impersonation example, as that's exactly why I need to send ETH. Impersonated accounts would most likely have 0 ETH, and so would need to have some ETH sent over before being used to initiate any TX.

Here is how I am getting the accounts

    const [owner,  feeCollector, operator] = await ethers.getSigners();
    await owner.sendTransaction({
      to: operator.address,
      value: ethers.utils.parseEther("1.0"), // Sends exactly 1.0 ether
