I've learned when major scale:

I: maj7
II:  min7
III: min7
IV: maj7
V: dominant 7
VI: min7
VII: -7

But what when it is a minor scale? For example E minor? Which type of chords
belongs to the 7 steps?

If it's "natural" minor than it's the same series, but starting on
the equivalent of degree 6 in the major:

i: min7
ii: -7
III: maj7
iv:  min7
v: min7
VI: maj7
VII: dom7

Harmonic minor has a raised 7 which changes all odd degrees:

i: min/maj7
ii: -7
III: maj7+5
iv: min7
V: dom7
VI: maj7
vii: dim7

As a subtle point, I would always use lower case for minor chords.

Hope this helps.

What is an -7 chord?

Is that an major chord with the 7 a half step lower? Or a minor chord?
