Email templates are not extension based. You can add new email templates for extension, for example when you want to send an email for a custom functionality (i.e. when you have a quote extension or something).

If you want to override your templates, there are two options:

  • You can do it on the server itself. All email templates are stored in app/locale/en_US/template/email. If you want to have a French version, you can copy these files to app/locale/fr_FR/template/email and translate/change them there.
  • You can do this from the Magento backend. This can be done by going to System > Transactional Emails. Here you can click "Add New Template". Now you can select the base template (the one for invoices) and update them there.

Be aware that a lot of mails, especially the sales emails, have a guest and logged in template. Also, it's important that you know how to use HTML if you want to change the look and feel of the emails.
