CEGB would be Cmaj7?

CEGD2 would be Cmaj9?

and so on and so forth?

Would adding any octave of B to CEG make it Cmaj7?

Yes, essentially it doesn't matter where the notes are on the neck and regardless of the inversion, provided that the ones you're hitting are CEGB. The process works pretty much the same with all chords based around 3rds. Of course there are twice as many possible 7th chords as there are regular triads since you've got another major or minor 3rd to tag onto the end of each triad.
