Can I Solder a usb-c female to a dc output?

I am trying to make a second monitor out of my old laptop screen. I have the control board already and it works, but I want to make it more compact. The screen takes a 12V power supply to power it, but I want to make it powered by plugging it into the USB port on the computer. My idea was to get a usb A male to usb C male cable on the computer and plug that into a Usb C female to AC adapter.

I’ve been looking for integrated power delivery cables but I’m having a really hard time finding one that’s 12 Volts. I know I can’t just take a 12V adapter, cut the plug, and replace it with a USB C Female bc the voltage would be too low. Can I take a usb c male to dc and cut the male end off and replace it with a usb c female or does that not work?

Does anyone know where I can find the integrated cable? I’d rather not solder since I have no experience with soldering nor do I have a soldering iron
