Starting from a dynamics specified under the risk-neutral measure $\mathbb{Q}$ \begin{align} &\frac{dS_t}{S_t} = (r-q) dt + \sigma dW_t^{\mathbb{Q}}\\ \iff& S_T\ \vert\ \mathcal{F}_t = S_t e^{(r-q-\frac{\sigma^2}{2})(T-t) + \sigma(W_T-W_t)} \tag{EQ.0} ...

If we have the swap contract, and it has td+2, as it value date, will we incorporate the 2 extra days, from the td+2 into the calculation as well?

The floating rate used to determine the interest payment in any given float leg roll depends on the fixing appropriate to the start of the roll. So if the only change to this IRS structure is to extend the final roll by 2 days, then that final rate will just be calculated to include the extra days using the day count convention, and that payment will be ...
