You can find a precompiled Windows binary of Ispell and many
dictionaries here:

You probably mean Hunspell (a derfivative of myspell), not myspell.

The above URL includes a Hungarian dictionary.  If that is not good
enough, I suggest to try aspell, as someone else suggested.

No, I don't think ispell.el will work with myspell without some
tinkering.
