Is Gallium magnetic? What happens when a magnet comes near?

No, gallium is not ferromagnetic.
It is either paramagnetic or diamagnetic (though it seems even wikipedia won´t tell me which), which means that it will be either sligthly repelled by or sligthly atracted to a magnet. Though the effect will probably be to small to notice, even with Nd-magnets.

Solid gallium are diamagnetic with susceptibility -0.25x10-6 CGSM/g.
Gallium in liquid state becomes paramagnetic with a very low absolute value 0.003x10-6
