I heard from around the grapevine that speed on almost any instrument has to do with how much fast-twich muscle you have (along with practice and technique, obviously). I also heard that your endurance has more to do with slow-twitch muscle. Is this true? If so, are some people just more naturally inclined to have greater speed, endurance, or both?

i think fast-twitch slow-twitch muscles are an urban myth arent they?
any way it would make sense......

Long story short: You can change the ratio between fast and slow twitch muscle through training. Ideally you'd want a balance between the two.
