The G#m7 is just a G#m and also no trying trying to fret 6th fret G string.

The F#/Bb is 698(11)xx EADGBe and in the chorus is played x14x2x EADGBe

the chorus is played E, B, F#/Bb x2 E, G#m,F# (x98676) E, B, F#/Bb, E

And the F#7 at the end of the verse isn't it's a Bb/Bsus2 or something i don't know the name but its played 6989xx EADGBe
