First things first, you must have a Facebook Page in order to connect your Instagram. This is a requirement on Meta’s end, and there’s no workaround (please note: an account and a page are two separate entities).
To connect an existing Facebook Page to Instagram or to create a new one altogether follow the steps below:
Go to your Instagram profile
Click Edit Profile
Then select Page
Here you will either see a Facebook page linked or you will have the option to follow the steps in creating or connecting a Facebook page

Note: Because Instagram is under Facebook, when you click Connect for Instagram, it will take you to a Facebook window. This is correct.
From there, follow the steps to connect:
Log in to your Facebook account and select which Business/Creator profile you wish to connect
Select the specific Facebook page tied to your Instagram
