Since Wi-Fi repeaters create a "new" _EXT network, can the devices see eachother through the two networks?
Example: If I have a printer connected to my network, and the PC connected to the _EXT network, can the PC see the printer?

You are just extending the wireless range.

Network devices and their respective network connections should all remain the same.

One caveat comes to mind - that the extender's IP address does not duplicate an existing network IP address.
Alright, how could I make that router's clients can't see repeater's clients and vice versa?

I am unable to answer that question per se.

What I would need to know (others may not) is a network diagram that presents your network(s).

Overall, it appears to me that you have some subnetting requirements where some network devices are limited in their ability to communicate with other network devices.

Are you able to provide some sort of sketch that shows all network devices/clients and which devices/clients can and cannot see the other devices?

Include current device IP addresses (DHCP or Static).
