If you use the MonsterInsights plugin, it’ll automatically tag your 404 pages for you. So then, if you go into your Google Analytics account and go to Behavior → Site Content → Content Drilldown and search for “404.html”, you’ll find a ton of info about your 404s (click for larger version):

Organic search results are listings on search engine results pages that appear because of their relevance to the search terms, as opposed to their being advertisements. In contrast, non-organic search results may include pay per click advertising.

The 404 Error Page, known as "page not found," is an HTTP[S] standardized status code that indicates an established connection with the server but an inability to find the page in question. Excessive 404 errors negatively impact a website's SEO and are lost revenue opportunities when the user does not ultimately navigate to the website.

I suggest to use the smallest amount of plugins possible because when you have lots of plugins, you never know what can happen after updating them. Be aware, that plugins can do everything on your website.

Go or subscribe to google webmaster tools and wait for the 404 to appear in Crawling errors. If it does not appear it means that Googlebot isn't aware of it.

Case 1:
Do you mean, there are lots of links to not existing pages in your pages and posts?
If you want to mass edit them, go to mysql and replace url in your WP_posts table.

Case 2:
If you deleted 9K pages. That's ok, let Google forgets them, that's the best you can do. Big online shops have to deal with many 404 pages too. Don't use 301 redirects.
