A general hint: make sure to provide as much information as possible.
Specifically: Provide the *complete* console output of each command
(or at least the ones that fail). Collect them in txt file(s) and
attach them to the mail.

Additionally I need to know:

- What architecture are you operating on? (x86_64)?
- What version of fluidsynth are you trying to build?

> CMake Error: Could not create named generator MSYS Makefiles

This error may occur when the wrong cmake is called (e.g. the one of
the MSYS installation). Execute

which -a cmake

in the cygwin shell to verify. Attach it's output if you are unsure.

Also, in addition to the strange behaviour you described in 1), I
suspect your MSYS / CygWin setup is broken. It could be that something
got mixed up. I suggest you uninstall both, MSYS and CygWin, through
the uninstaller. Additionally you should manually clean up all
leftover directories and files of both. Also make sure your system's
%PATH% environment variable does not contain any MSYS or CygWin paths
any more. Also remove the native cmake that way.

After that, decide for either MSYS or CygWin or native cmake, install
it for all users and make sure to add it to the system's PATH
variable. Note that any application built with cygwin is no native
windows build as it will depend on cygwin libraries. However: Unless
you have good reasons to use MSYS or Cygwin, I would recommend that
you give the MinGW method a try.

This is way too vague. Which command(s) did you enter and what errors
occur? See initial hint.
