Pendraken Line voltigeur pack contains 16 figures – 13 foot, 1 officer, 1 musician, 1 standard. I don't need the standard do I? Flank companies didn't carry them? What about the musician, can I use him, or didn't flank companies have them either?

Line voltigeur musician with bugle would be OK.

At some point, the voltigeur companies has 1 drummer and 1 trumpeter. I understand that they had no trumpeters at the end of the period.

No standard, unless a sergeant carried a fanion, staff of which was inserted into the muzzle of his musket.
