I know I can use HDMI to USB connect a monitor with a computer, but how about use this way to connect iPad?

I'm afraid that it won't work. The only way to display the iPad screen on an external monitor is to use AirPlay mirroring with an Apple TV.

...or, the 30-pin to HDMI cable for older iPads. I considered a cable, but given everything else the Apple TV does (Netflix, streaming music from my iMac, etc.), I bought an Apple TV as the better value.

What I'm trying to do is:
Monitor--HDMI to HDMI--HDMI to USB--USB female to USB female so we can directly use iPad cable to connect iPad.
I have all the hardwares now. But not sure if it possible to do this.

Nope. The Lightning (or) 30 pin to HDMI is what you need.

Or Apple TV.
