Do you want to use the existing extension your friend has created "as
is" with your module or do you want to use certain features you find in
the extension only?
 
If it is the former "as is" you just right click your module in the
module manager and select add extension. This assumes how it is set up
is totally compatible with whatever you are using it for and the
extension has been marked as usable by any module. Youll know if its not
when you try to play using it...
 
 If it is the latter (features only) you must edit the extension just
like you would a module, see what they did to create the feature(s) you
want to use, then edit your module/new extension whatever and recreate
it there verbatim if it is exactly what you want to do.
