In Polish, the word 'muzyczny' would be used here, and 'muzykalny' is used to describe a person who has some musical talent or likes music very much. Wiktionary translates музыкальный as muzykalny, not muzyczny, I see that it is at least partially wrong. But is there maybe another word that is used in similar contexts as I mentioned?

Yes. That isn't correct English.

Please, explain, why? In some cases I can use -ing, sometimes I can't. What is the cause?

Why can't I leave "musical" out in this sentence? I thought that maybe "музыкальный интсрумент" would be a fixed phrase and just translated to "instrument".

because an instrument can also be a piece of equipment or measuring device. Musical instrument would mean the thing that is supposed to make pretty noises (instead of beeps) xD
