If I'm using /set Staff.midiInstrument = "#<inst>", can I also use some descriptor that equals NO sound, for example, "NUL" or something similar like /set Staff.midiInstrument = "#NUL"

This doesn't exist in the MIDI norm, but you can do

\set Staff.midiMaximumVolume = 0

Please refer to

If you want a staff to be silent not on a
particular passage but on the whole score,
you can also \remove the Staff_performer.
This differs from setting midiMaximumVolume
in that it will not output the notes with
volume 0, but stop outputting the notes at all.

\version "2.22.1"

\score {
    \new Staff \with {
      \remove Staff_performer
    } {
    \new Staff { e' f' }
  \midi { }
  \layout { }
