I must admit it's not clear to me what you're asking.

 449 guix install build-essential

This is not a Guix package. Nor is ‘gcc’, but trying to install it will say so and install ‘gcc-toolchain’ for you instead.

Are you copy-pasting instructions for Debian into a Guix System? That's not going to work, even if you s/apt/guix/...

So here I install "gcc" and "build-essentials" but have no success cause
my simple copypasted lines do not work without reboot.

Define 'no success'.  What happened?  What changed after rebooting?

And only next time I turn back to this interest after several restarts
I have success.
Please, can you advise me what to do after installing such system things
and also after system reconfigure for get changes work?

Hm. You don't need to restart after installing packages or reconfiguring your system. Without more information (i.e. command output, not just input history) it's going to be very hard to guess what went wrong and what 'fixed' it.

Kind regards,
