Shallow and pedantic.

In any key you can play whatever you like; theory describes what you have done, it doesn't tell you what to do. That said, yes an Em9 chord is diatonic to the key of E minor.

When it comes to what you can play with it... whatever you hear in your head that sounds like it.

a ninth chord is just a second raised an octave...obviously because there are not nine notes in a scale.

So in em you word raise the second of e an octave which happens to be F#

So there you go.
I still like Dream Theater
