I am not too sure this is the right forum to ask.

And I highly doubt you will get any useful info here.

Indian nationals do require visas to ENTER REPUBLIC OF MACEDONIA.And they can be obtained in Macedonian Embassy in NEW DELHI :

Embassy of the Republic of Macedonia in New Delhi
Hauz Khaz Enclave K 80 A,
New Delhi 110016, India

00 91 (11) 4614 2602

Also as already mention the Indian citizens can enter with valid schengen visas with max stay 15 days,and your schengen visas has to be valid for more that period.

For KOSOVO in the moment you do not need visas for entry but is in FORCE on the border or Airport the police require from each persons :

-valid hotel confirmed reservation
-travel health insurances
- to cover your stay min.500 euro
