Extender Help

Happy New Year All - I am in need of some help with my router and extender please.

I currently have the Nighthawk R7000, running the latest Kong DD-WRT v3.0-r36070M kongac. I need to get an extender for my house so I got the Netgear AC1900 WiFi Mesh Extender, EX6400. 

-Do I have to download DD-WRT onto the extender?

-I've really tried to find instruction on how to connect the router and the extender. Is that also called a Wireless Distribution System (WDS)? Are those the instructions I should follow?

I'm not good at this, and I barely had enough confidence to put DD-WRT on my router. Adding an extender scares me more.

Thanks for any help.
