why is it wrong not to add the second word in this sentence since you can say "that" without it?

If you are referring to the "ge", I think in Chinese you must have that word when you refer to a person. I believe it is a required "measure" word, like "a" or "an" in English, though in this case we wouldn't use those words in English.

Isn't it rude to use the measure word ``ge'' for people? Wouldn't wei 位 be more polite?

Although "位" is more polite, "个" is usually not considered rude. However, "个" cannot replace "位" in common phrases like "诸位".

I believe it is wrong because the English sentence clearly states "That PERSON..." I think since you eliminated it in your response, what you really said in English is "That is our..." rather than "that PERSON is our..."
