But what I'm trying to do is rotate some of the bones during the animation using the keyboard with Python which doesn't work only if the armature didn't have any animation. Any ideas?


The action actuator will play the animation of the action. This animation consists of several channels. On armature actions these channels are the channels of the single bones. Typical channels are location, rotation, scale.

When you play two actions that share the same channel only one of the actions will be played (unless
