Explanation:
Those of us from Argentina are very familiar with "pionono con dulce de leche" (it does exist!), but can't say there is something exactly like it here in the US, and hence there is no precise translation. I agree with the others in writing "sweet roll" for pionono. As of "dulce de leche", one option is to write "caramel fudge" or "milk caramel" (as they do in this Web site below that sells Argentine stuff in the US). Leaving "dulce de leche" as is it's also OK, since many people in the US are now familiar with this term because Hagen-Daaz (the famous ice-cream brand) has launched a flavor "dulce de leche", which is the real thing.

Explanation:
If the "dulce de leche" is really important to convey "argentine color", I would leave it in Spanish and maybe add a short explanation. That depends on the text you are working on, and the prospective reader.
Best regards from Argentina and good luck

pionono filled with dulce de leche is sold in the shop.


Explanation:
Pionono is a very sweet cupcake which was created in Granada in order to conmemorate the visit of Pope Pio IX, so you can't translate that word. It is wound and has cream inside, but not "dulce de leche". I know it for sure because I've been in Granada last week and I ate it! However,"dulce de leche" is a typical dessert from Argentina. So maybe the original text is wrong, I don't know.

sweet (or Swiss) pastry/roll


Explanation:
The Argentine "pionono" or "pío nono" (historical note: comes from Pope Pius IX) is similar in shape and form to the Swiss roll or the Spanish "brazo de gitano". However, I would choose the former (sweet)as you may be misleading the reader by putting "Swiss". "Dulce de leche" is a creamy sweet caramel made from milk or condensed milk, similar to fudge. I concur with the other person who replied recommending that you leave it in Spanish and provide a brief explanation.

sweet rolls with caramel sauce filling are sold in the shop


Explanation:
I would suggest adding ( "dulce de leche") in brackets after caramel sauce to stress it is typical from Argentina.
In fact, it is also a very common pastry in Uruguay too.
