multiple indepentent axis

I'm currently installing my duet wifi 2 + duex 5 into my printer. Everything goes super smooth and i'm just starting to play around with the web control.
I would like to have the XYZ axis function as a normal printer would do (cartesian style) and i would like to use the other 7 stepper motor drives individually.
I initially thought that configuring them as extruders would do the job, but I found that it then becomes quite hard to run them at the same time on individual speeds/distances. And I would have to combine them all in one tool. This makes custom Gcode commands rather challenging ( did not find a way to make it work).
So I then found a workaround by configuring them as U, V, W axis. However that only works for 3 axes... How would I then configure the remaining 4 axes..?
Are there more available axes to configure?
Last question.. What endstops should I use for these axis? Also, i dont really need the endstops for my purpose but the web controller does not allow me to move without homing....

You can also map drives as A, B, C, etc.

To flag the additional axes as homed, use G92 commands. For example, add this to the end of your homeall.g file:
G92 U0 V0 W0
