A chord that is written like Am/E means you play an A minor chord, but with an E in the bass. The E can either be played by you, or by a bassist while you play Am over the top. The end result is just an A minor chord because E is the perfect 5th of A. If the chord was Am/F then it would give the overall tonality of a Fmaj7 chord. It's useful to write chords like this when you have a riff like the intro of "Mr Brightside" by The Killers, where the chord progression could be written as: G#sus4/C#, G#sus4/C, G#sus4/F#, G#sus4/F#, because in each bar G#, C# and D# are played, but with a different bass note each time (except for the last two bars). Although I'm not particually a fan of The Killers, that is the best, well-known example I can think of at the moment.

I don't think those chords you said above exist, because slash chords look like [chord name]/[bass note]. Slashes can also be used, however, to show notes in a chord that have be raised or flattened, for example: Am/5+ is A minor but with an augmented 5th, which creates an F major chord. These chords look like [chord name]/[note which is altered][how it's been altered], and appear quite a bit in internet-based tabs, because there is no flat button on a keyboard.

Hope this helps.
