now i know my powerchords pretty well and i know the theory behind a powerchord
but today i was messing around and i came up with these

9 8 11
9 9 9
7 7 7

now i know the first is a power chord
but those other two i came across sound good to
could someone tell me what they are and a little theory behind them?

The first is a Bmaj, the second is a Bmaj7, the third is a Bmaj9 i think.

question: is it Bsus2 or Bmaj9? why/whats the difference between sus2 and 9, or sus4 and 11, etc..

Suspended chords means that the 2 or 4 replaces, or suspends, the role of the 3. For instance, if the third chord is played on the A string, the notes would be E B F#. So, with E as the root, the intervals would be 1 5 2. As there is no third, it must be considered a sus2 chord.

If there is a third, with the second present aswell, then it would be called an add9 chord. If it called a 9 chord, then it means that there is dominant 7 chord with a 9 added on. There are several more combinations, but I don't want to fry your brain too much.
