Is it okay to install two desktop wallets in one PC? I mean is there a security concerns if one does that? Or there will be no problem if I do that, two different wallet software in one desktop will work well separately on one PC?

Its fine to have multiple wallets on the same computer. Just make sure that they are pointing to a different data directory (for Core and Cash).

The problem with security is hard to tell. If you are using two different wallets, Bitcoin Core and Electrum, it would not be a problem as long as you downloaded them from the official site or compiled them yourself. However, if you used an untrusted source or an alt coin wallet, the security could be an issue. There is no guarantee that there would not be malware in them.

By desktop wallet I guess you mean wallet software. You can have as many of them as you want and it wouldn't be a problem. It's like installing multiple computer programs. They are not conflicting with each other.

As long as they're actually different, there's no problem.

For example, you should NEVER install both Bitcoin Core and Bitcoin ABC (Bitcoin Cash) in the same computer. Those are coded with the same path to the data directory.

Minor correction: they're both coded with the same DEFAULT install and data directory paths. Both of which are easily customisable.

You can safely run Bitcoin Core and Bitcoin ABC on the same PC. I currently do this and as long as you set them up properly, and don't just blindly click "next" during install and setup, they'll happily run side by side without interfering with each other

There is no problem in running 2 different (or same) wallets on the same pc.
BUT you should carefully be only downloading official, verifiable wallets to make sure none of your funds get stolen.
I would be careful when holding a lot of alt coins. Because not every wallet is open source.
In this case you should split your "safe" wallets and your altcoin (non-verified) wallets onto 2 different pc's. (Or at least a hardware wallet for bigger funds).
