If you are looking to a theory to treat these N particles with different
mass and charge on a same footing then you may look at the multicomponent
extension of (TD)DFT. There is one chapter of the TDDFT book
<<Time-dependent Density Functional Theory, M. A. L. Marques and C. A.
Ullrich and F. Nogueira and A. Rubio and K. Burke and E. K. U. Gross
(editors), Springer Berlin Heidelberg New York, (2006)>>
dedicated to multicomponent DFT. Also there is a recent PRL
In standard (TD)DFT on atoms, molecules solids, nuclei are considered as
