Sorry for not replying to this sooner.  It got lost

Neither of these extend beyond Royal.

(Incidentally, there is no need to introduce the notation 
"NHI" with N being the number of bells -- as subsequent 
extensions can never introduce places between 1st place and 
(N-7)ths place (exclusive), this can simply be called a 7HI

Yes.  There is an extension that work on 4n bells -- it is 
4FG/7HI.  The extension to Maximus has the place notation


This is the only indefinite extension.
