How to insert controls (like CComboBox) into CToolBar?
Now I'm inserting CComboBox calling CComboBox::Create(), but I can't insert buttons after CComboBox.

Use a CDialogBar. CToolBar is just for buttons.

to add control into CToolBar you must perform two steps:
1.in ToolBar resource define 3 separators/per control
[]___[][][] ([]- button _ separator) control will appear after first button) two additional separators are for create free space between buttons and control.
2.when you create toolbar just resize appropriate separator and place control into separators rectangle:
// typically this code is placed in the CMainFrame::OnCreate function
// IDW_COMBO - identifier of the combobox
// m_wndToolBar - your CToollBar
//
//

// this code must be called after createion m_wndToolBar
// Create the combo box
m_wndTollBar.SetButtonInfo(2, IDW_COMBO, TBBS_SEPARATOR, 100);

CRect rect;
m_wndStyleBar.GetItemRect(2, &rect);
rect.top = 3;
rect.bottom = rect.top + 100;
if (!m_wndComboBox.Create(CBS_DROPDOWNLIST|WS_VISIBLE|WS_TABSTOP,
                  rect, &m_wndToolBar, IDW_COMBO))
{
      TRACE0("Failed to create combo-box\n");
      return FALSE;
}
