Please help. I'm such a dumb-ass when it comes to chords. I need to know how to do these exactly.

EM7; E7/b5; AM9; D9 or D13; C#m9; F#13; F#m; G#m; AM7; B9sus;

I know some of them of course, but I don't know how to do the 9, or the 13, or the slash chord, or the minor 9. I know the numbers represent the note's position/number, but I don't know the best place to fret them because when I write the scale and its notes, there are like 12 frets and millions of possible combinations. I know where to find the notes, but I just don't know which ones to fret (combination to come up with the chord)! I know this is novice stuff, but please help me. Thanks a lot.

Here is an example of your requested chord progression where the chords lead nicely from one to the next.

EMaj7 ; E7/5- ; AMaj7 ; D9 ; C#m9 ; F#13 ; F#m7 ; G#m7 ; AMaj7 ;

E||--7----|--------|-------|-------|--------|--------|--2----|--4----|--------|
B||--9----|---9----|--5----|--5----|--4----|--4----|--2----|--4----|--5-----|

Guitar pro 5, the "chord" tool. Wether it's intervals, fingerings, alternate tunings it gives you all fingerings possible immediately.
