I know there are usb adapters that allow a computer to get bluetooth, but are there bluetooth adapters that will allow me to plug in my USB printer(s) to make them wireless?

I have one printer plugged into my AEBS, and I know I can use a USB hub for more but its in another room.

Yes their are. I'm pretty sure I've seen one before BUT it needs to have that option on the printer. It needs to be set up for that from the get go. I do not believe you can just but a after market BT adapter to use with a USB device. Other wise everybody would be using BT for EVERYTHING. I know I would be if it was that easy.
