Is that considered Em2 or Em(add9)? Why one and not the other?

I would call it Em(add9) just because I don't see Em2 around very often.

its e minor add 9. the reason is a 2 chord is a sus chord which requires omitting the 3rd (sus chords are generally considered neutral chords as they don't contain the defining 3rd) and for this to be Em9 it would need to contain its 7th as well. since it doesn't have the 7th in it, its just a minor chord with a 9th added on to it.

That would just be Esus2, but yes.

the reason its called an e9 is because the f# is an octave or higher than the root note

Not really. It's still a ninth chord if the ninth is in the same octave, or even lower than the root.
