On a imported pump gun like the pardner protector, how many US parts are needed to make compliant so you can add a extended magazine tube? I find a lot of conflicting info on the web.

Well, here's what 18 USC 922(r) says:
...(r) It shall be unlawful for any person to assemble from imported parts any semiautomatic rifle or any shotgun which is identical to any rifle or shotgun prohibited from importation under section 925 (d)(3) of this chapter as not being particularly suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes except that this subsection shall not apply to—
(1) the assembly of any such rifle or shotgun for sale or distribution by a licensed manufacturer to the United States or any department or agency thereof or to any State or any department, agency, or political subdivision thereof; or
(2) the assembly of any such rifle or shotgun for the purposes of testing or experimentation authorized by the Attorney General. ...
I'm not a lawyer, and I'm not giving you legal advice, but it appears to me that 922(r) only applies to semi-auto shotguns and rifles.

You as an individual in Tenn., can do anything you want to your gun as long as you don't run afoul of the federal regulations governing overall length, barrel length, and fully auto weapons. The rule you are referring to refers to importers, distributors, etc.

Virginian, 922(r) applies to everyone. Note the language "any individual" in the sub-section.

The way I read it, it applies to ANY semi auto rifle and ANY shotgun and that the semi auto only applies to the rifle.

You have to go back and look at the definitions under 925(d)c to see which firearms are prohibited from import in the first place.

(d) The Attorney General shall authorize a firearm or ammunition to be imported or brought into the United States or any possession thereof if the firearm or ammunition -

(1) is being imported or brought in for scientific or research purposes, or is for use in connection with competition or training pursuant to chapter 401 of title 10;

(2) is an unserviceable firearm, other than a machinegun as defined in section 5845(b) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (not readily restorable to firing condition), imported or brought in as a curio or museum piece;

(3) is of a type that does not fall within the definition of a firearm as defined in section 5845(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 and is generally recognized as particularly suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes, excluding surplus military firearms, except in any case where the Attorney General has not authorized the importation of the firearm pursuant to this paragraph, it shall be unlawful to import any frame, receiver, or barrel of such firearm which would be prohibited if assembled; or
