Is there a way for me to leave a headphone extender cable plugged into the back of my iMac and have the external speakers play until I plug in headphones?

There should be an option in the volume menu in your menu bar. Hold down option and click the volume symbol in the menu bar.

Only 'Headphones' shows up.

'Fraid not! There is a switch in the jack socket on your iMac and when the 'phones are plugged in they disconnect the internal speakers.
