Does anyone know how to set up a TP-Link modem-router to use as a wireless extender/repeater for an Airport Extreme?
I have this TP-Link modem-router: TP-Link
And this Airport Extreme: Airport Extreme

As a backup plan, would I be able to use this Airport Express model as a wireless extender/repeater for the same Airport Extreme?
Airport Express

Thanks a bunch!

One of the two has to have a wireless extender/repeater mode. From what I saw the TP link doesn't have such a working mode unfortunately I don't think the Airport does either.
You could look into the DD-WRT firmware for the TP Link and if there is a compatible version you will be able to use it without any extra hardware...
