Is there a way to have KACE automatically inventory your monitors and connected USB Devices?

not automaticly, but this is a great possibility for Custom Inventory Rules.
If you find a command which shows all you need, you simply can configure a CIR.
This is for printers and ports: ShellCommandTextReturn(cmd /c "wmic printer get name,portname")
This is for all connected storage devices: ShellCommandTextReturn(cmd /c "wmic diskdrive get model, drive, name")
You need to create a new software Item (Inventory > Software > New) and set this as Custom Inventory Rule.
If you only find scripts to read it out (or have one handy) you need to copy this script on any system on a readable location for the system Service and run it via a CIR

the monitors are already in the inventory.
About the USB devices I found a nice script here:

You can try to run the script and put the result in a file that you take with a Custom Inventory Rule.
