Is it possible to plug my 2500w omni extension into my 1000va UPS?
And then plugging my PC and Monitor into the extension cord? Will it still work? or is this dangerous?

Extension cords should never be used as a permanent solution. Will it work? Probably. Is it dangerous? Probably not, but you can never completely rule out some fault that could cause a short or a spark.

My problem is because the power cable of the UPS is integrated and it is too short. the positioning of everything is ruined and there is no other socket near my pc. What do you suggest I do?

Ideally, you hire an electrician to run an additional line from your nearest outlet to where you need an outlet. Sorry, but I can't recommend any other solution.

Edit:
While these are intended to run vertically between studs, if you're mechanically inclined, you might be able to run something like this:
