All of these chords would fall nicely into C harmonic minor, with the exception of Bb min7.

G7sus4, I would look at as a sub(stitution) for the Dmin7b5. They are almost the same chord.

Bm7 is close. It's actually Bm11, because of the E note.

You could go to the Dm from G or C.

Power chords are really just intervals of a perfect 5th, not really chords and as someone mentioned don't have a major or minor quality because there is no 3rd.

So, you can bend alot of rules.

your formula from your teacher is for diatonic chords ( chords that naturally occur in a certain key )

Try using chords that use the same string sets. i.e. chords on the G, B, and high E strings.
