I only have 1.5 inches clearance if that until my keyboard tray hits.

Do they make lets say low profile USB 3.0 Micro-B to USB Cable ? With the USB end being 1.5 inches or less when plugged in.

How else would I solve my problem ?

I found these https://www.amazon.com/Adapter-VCZHS-USB3-0-Converter-Female/dp/B01G8H7I44/ref=sr_1_7?dchild=1&keywords=low+profile+usb+3.0+splitter&qid=1593450598&sr=8-7&th=1 and https://www.amazon.com/Antrader-Degree-Extension-Converter-Adapter/dp/B07F7Y21GW/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&keywords=low+profile+usb+3.0+splitter&qid=1593450598&sr=8-10&th=1 but figured out it will only work on one usb port. The other one to the left, I believe, will run in to the right one :(

Personally, I'd just get a USB3 hub and run a rear motherboard port to it placed on my desk.

Otherwise, how about right angle adapters but facing the other direction, one left facing and the other one right facing, then if there is too much plastic on the ends, for them to sit next to each other in adjacent USB ports, then use a razor blade or knife to cut a little of the plastic off the ends?
