Connect the APC UPS to the server, connect the com cable and install Powerchute for the server. The business edition is a free download from here:

The interface is almost self explaining.

Yes, USB is good. You must add an agent. I use the snmp agent to manage the UPS on the server from another workstation. If you have smart agent install it.
