    Could Matej nema hlad also be correct?

    Yes, that is the neutral variant. "Matěj hlad nemá." stresses the word "nemá". For example, it is a response to someone who thought Matěj is hungry. Or, another example, when there is a group of people including Matěj, most of them are hungry, and you say that Matěj is not hungry.

    should t sound like k when followed by an e with hachek because Matej usually sounds like Makej on duolingo?

    ě softens the preceding consonant "t", "d" and "n". So the sound you hear is definitely not [k], but palatalized [t'].

    Program admonishes me to "Pay attention to the accents", but it did not give me the row of special Czech letters to select from. What's with that?

    I added "Matej". I recommend you to install a Czech keyboard layout anyway.
