I am not completely sure, but think that you would need to make some API calls in a VBA macro in order for this to happen.
As far as I know, you can directly influence the position of a userform but to show it on a second monitor you would either have to make the parent of the userform (the excel application it resides in) to be active on the second screen, or make windows open the form in the second screen

No clue which API statements would be appropriate for this however...
