(Supposing I understood well your question...)

For this part of problem, you have to declare your classes in your
original package (say mypack) in a separate file say mypack/inst/include/mypack.h
Then in a package which will extend it (say otherpack) you will
delcare in its DESCRIPTION
LinkingTo: mypack

It will allow you to put in your otherpack/src/*.cpp files
#include <mypack.h> So you'll be able to use/extend mypack classes.

As to taking objects instantiated from your classes as arguments in R session,
it's indeed a matter of custom as()/wrap() custom definition.
Or you can use XPtr hook to passe just pointers to your objects
and de-referencing them appropriately in the Rcpp code.
