All good! Just make sure you use b's and not #'s over the Gm7 arpeggio, Bb is in the key so even though A# is the same note, Bb is "more correct" for lack of a better term.

And yes, when I said 7th arpeggio I mean Dominant 7th, most of the time we just shorten things up and say 7th rather than Dominant 7th to save time/space.

Hey, you just have it backwards, the Dmaj7 chord would be 1 3 5 7 or D F# A C#, then D7 would have a b7, so 1 3 5 b7 or D F# A C. That's all.

Yeah, for Dmaj7 your first mode would be D Ionian, D7 would be D Mixolydian and Dm7 would be either D Aeolian or D Dorian depending if it was a rock or fusion/jazz situation.
