comment Fifths of #9 chords
Whether you alter a specific tone depends on context - it depends on the tonality, which is established by the surrounding chords. So it's a bit pointless to talk about a single chord as if it stands on its own.

comment The teaching of scales, chords and keys
It all boils down to reharmonization. If a note that is not in the key sounds good in a particular context, it's because that note belongs to a chord that can be rehamonized at that point.

comment Is this a Csus4 chord?
@Tim. you are correct. But a lot of times when a chord is written as a 7th it is implied that you can use the other tensions as you see fit. harmonically if you continue to keep the 3rd and 7th it still functions as the 7th chord. Or in this case the sus note (4th) and the 7th.
