Modems for MSX exist indeed. Philips and Microtechnology types were very popular. MSX and datacommunications were a good combination. Once, especially the first years after the commercial death and before the rise of the internet the MSX BBS scene was a huge movement, with also the BBS running on a MSX.
MSX modems were 1200/75 (for e.g videotex, now long forgotten) and 1200/1200 baud. Faster is possible with a rs232 interface in the MSX and an external modem. So sending and receiving data via a modem is possible. Not much used though lately, MSX modems and printers on fairs are usually thrown away at the end, nodbody wants one.

What you want, using a MSX as phone, is not available for MSX. MSX modems do not have the wave in/output required for that.
