It could be, if played intently by someone. I don't think that wind is having intent but who knows smile

Yes. There are types of music that are random. They could also be considered an effect.

Can be, if played with musical intent.
No. Unless you find "yes" a useful concept. In which case, yes.

I would say anything that can make a sound you like is an instrument.
