First one is Emaj7, second is Emaj7/D#, or Emaj7 in third inversion. You could try going to C#min7 afterwards, then to B7

The first one is an EM7sus2. The second one is an D#m#5. You could probably also use it to imply an EM7sus2/D#. The first one wants to resolve to a major chord, such as the EM7. The second is something you might see in a jazz context. The #5 is a B, so resolve it to something with either an A# or a C in it, for a bit of chromaticism. There are some other choices, but that should give you a start for now.
#5
the first chord is an Emaj7sus2, as has been pointed out.

the second one doesn't look like Emaj7/D# (although theoretically it could be) or like a D#m(#5) (which doesn't have a B but an Ax). it looks to me like it's just a Bmaj chord in first inversion.
Anfangen ist leicht, Beharren eine Kunst.

Totally didn't realize that it wasn't just the standard maj7 shape. I feel dumb now xD

Both chords have a B major triad on top.

I'd call the first Emaj7sus2 as KG6_Steven said, but the second is just B/D# aka B major in a first inversion.

With that in mind you could look at it as the I and the V chords. So for other options diatonically in that case you'll have: Emaj7 F#min7 G#min7 Amaj7 B7 C#min7 and D#min7b5. Keep in mind the 7ths are optional if you're not a fan of them.

Alternatively you could look at it as the IV and I chords. Try not to get too hung up on analyzing till you've written a few more than two chords.


:Edit: I just now saw that it was answered already, whoops!
