So I had a curiosity question that I couldn’t find an answer to. Everything I googled took me to a very different topic.

obviously you can’t use cable extensions in place of your stock cables because the stock cables are male-to-male while extensions are male-to-female.

my question is, could I take a male connector off the stock cable and make an extension cable male-to-male? Seems like it should work but I’d rather not fry my components if someone has a more experienced answer.
 
As long as you wire it up correctly you can make an extension and it will work fine but I can't emphasise enough that you have to connect the correct wires and don't go just by wire color,make sure to look at pinouts for the connectors and make sure the pins have the correct wire connected.

The problem with questions like this is..."can I?"..."could I?"

Can it be done?
Yes. Basically, a simple wire termination and extension. With proper mechanical and electrical connection, solder, heatshrink, etc.

Can you do it is the actual question.
If this is your first lap around the track with a soldering gun...no.
If you are experienced with making connections like this, you would have just done it.

See where I'm going with this?

PSU cabling is not something you modify as a first attempt.
