There are no "extended chords" because they don't view harmony that way. You're thinking about it vertically. They view it horizontally. ie the 9th is just a suspension from a previous harmony that's waiting to resolve.

...modes and scales are still useless.

OK thanks, but what if I wanted to? How would I express them?

You could just put V9 for a dominant 9th to get the point across.

For a slash chord you could just write the chord's roman numeral/the bass notes roman numeral, but I don't think that'd be effective in simply demonstrating what you want.

Again, you're sort of trying to apply a system of analysis that isn't meant for certain things. It's like trying to put the triangle in the square hole.

You say you're working on your 4 part writing for a theory test. Like a college theory test? In that case, you need to be thinking in terms of triads, and some basic 7th chords. Extended harmony isn't part of the vocabulary, and it's going to complicate part writing issues for you in terms of good voiceleading - avoiding parallel perfect intervals and whatnot.

"Slash" chords in this type of writing would be analyzed as an inversion. In Baroque writing, you probably won't find this, but if you were to do a macro analysis of later works, you will find these things. ie B/A would be V4/2. Or, it would be analyzed as a pedal tone. It could also be part of a passacaglia.
