I'm not sure I really understand what this means...

An EClass for a generated model is generally a static thing that's best
not modified. Of course you can associate things with it in the normal
Java way, i.e., with a map that has the EClass as the key...

EAnnotations are generally static information associated with the class,
not dynamic information... Certainly it's possible for an EAnnotation
use it's references feature to refer to EObjects in some other resource,
but I'm not sure that's really what you want; you'd need to use dynamic
package loading (GenPackage options) to support that...

No. You should think of this as similar to wanting to load dynamic
objects to a java.lang.Class, i.e., you generally can't and don't...
