I don't see an video out port in this model (CQ1 1310-IN). Is there any way to connect a ViewSonic display to this computer? Will USB-video cable work?

Most likely a device similar to this will give you the ability to drive a second monitor, no matter the PC.

I would not recommend a "USB-video cable"

I am afraid this computer does not have a USB 3.0 port. I have ordered an USB 2.0 - VGA adapter from Amazon. Lets see how that turns out.

I was also wondering whether this particular model supports installing a USB 3.0 card or a HDMI card. Any idea sir?

In looking at the PC specs, I found you are correct in that the PC does not have USB 3.0 ports, however, those devices are usually backward compatible for the USB 2.0 ports.  Since that is not a conventional PC but an AIO, There is not a slot for adding a USB 3.0 card unless you can find one that will work in a PCI Express x1 mini card socket.

As for the HDMI, I gave you an option for that - the USB adapter.  But if you really bought the " I have ordered an USB 2.0 - VGA adapter" then no.  That one would only give you a VGA output
