The USB-C cable for my charger is fine, but it's too short. What sort of specifications should I look for in a replacement as to not losing any charging power or somehow harming charger/computer? Thanks.

I'd avoid purchasing online in this particular scenario and make sure the cable you purchase supports USB 3.1 or higher. Vanilla USB 3 supports only up to about 10 watts while 3.1 bumps up to 240 which covers the 65 or so you need. If you decide to order online, then at least try to get a name brand cable, like a Samsung cable, and make sure it says USB 3.1 or higher.

Thanks, yeah I don't want to buy a bad cable - that's why I'm asking for the specifications I have to be on the lookout for. So, you'd say minimum USB 3.1 and minimum 65W?
