When playing Cytus, I found out that sometimes the songs count on "Chapter Select" doesn't match the songs on that chapter.

Example: Chapter I ("Operators") shows 12 songs, but when I count, there are only 10 songs.

Is that a bug, or are there hidden songs/charts? If so, then how can I access them? Do I need to pay another IAP?

Is that a bug, or are there hidden songs?

Nope, it's not a bug, and yes, there are hidden songs since v1.1 (before the introduction of chapters system). As of current version (v10), there are 30 hidden songs (including 11 songs from "Cytus Alive", a hidden chapter) + 20 secret charts (same song, different charts, exclusive to Chapter L).

Do I need to pay another IAP?

No, you only need to pay for the chapter itself. After unlocking the chapter, you get access to all songs on it, including the hidden songs.

How can I access them?

As mentioned before, there are 30 hidden songs + 11 "Alive" songs.

Cytus Alive

For the first 10 chapters (Chapter I - Chapter X) plus Chapter Million, each chapter has a corresponding "Alive" song, which can be accessed by pressing the Easy (green)/Hard (red) circle on the "Chapter Select" screen.
