the instrumental will have the exact same musical score but be played by a different instrument and sounds different.
 
also what is the my version f the instrumental is very similar to the original but the musical score is not exactly the same (and a different instrument is used)

(there are nor lyrics or vocals involved).

are ripping theme movie theme songs(no vocals or lyrics) and games (no vocals or lyrics) copyrighted as well

The tune is copyrighted. If you did not write it, you'll need permission to broadcast it on Youtube.

Technically you'll need a 'mechanical license' to perform a composition that is registered copy-written material.  That is to be considered if you are making a profit from the recording.

If you use the song, it's copyrighted. If they recognize that you may have infringed on their rights, they may file a claim.
 
There is an exception or two, e.g., "fair use," but they can still file a claim, you'd have that exception as a defense if you ever wind up in court.
