Can I have a Skype call with an individual from a particular country?

It is highly unlikely that you will be able to chat with someone from a country where you do not speak the language. You will need to speak the language of that country in order to have a decent chat.
Do people from different countries talk to each other?
There are no national accents, and the people you speak to have a great deal in common. They will also be looking for you for a variety of reasons, such as a job, travel, business, etc.
Do they have different accents?
Yes, some people speak in English and some in a different language, or are very fluent in a foreign language. If you speak to someone speaking a foreign language you might ask what they are saying, and how much they speak it, in order to make sure that they understand you.
Does Skype help you learn a language?

What if I don't want to meet someone for a Skype meeting?
Well that's ok too, I have also got some other things on my agenda to talk about so we can have the Skype meeting.
What should I tell the person who is calling?
Tell them you want to have a Skype meeting, tell them about the upcoming talks you are going to in Stockholm (or other places) and tell them you are willing to join them for a coffee, lunch, or dinner (if you want) on the days when you will meet. You can also mention that you need to get your stuff from home as soon as possible to get ready for the talks you are going to be doing (so they can give you some time to get settled).
