Why does the 'cz' make a 'ch' sound? And the 'sz' as a 'sh' sound? Are there any other mixed letters that does these as well?

You can find such combinations in Polish quite often. You should learn their pronunaction separately, there are only a few of them. http://www.omniglot.com/writing/polish.htm

In polish a rule of thumb would have to be that when you put a z next to a letter it becomes the equivalent of an "h" next to it in English. Dz makes an airy G like a Dh in Dziewczynka.

Too difficult to type words with a 'crenska', or 'dialectic mark'.

Duolingo doesn't require that you add the diacritics. However, it's very simple to add a Polish keyboard to a windows computer. Here's a link right here: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-change-your-keyboard-layout-windows-10

After you add the keyboard, all I have to do is hit "ALT + SHIFT" after adding the Polish keyboard and voila!... mogę mówić po polsku!

Why is it mężczyzną instead of mężczyzna here?

It's not. "A man" is the subject of the sentence and therefore it takes Nominative, "mężczyzna", without the -ą.
