Export an Oracle extension to another extension

I would like to know if I can export an Oracle extension to another extension, for example to a *.dbf.

Your export files can use any file extension you like. If you are asking to change the format of the dump file to another format, that is not possible. You cannot change an Oracle dump file from the exp or expdp (new in 10g) utilities to any other format. Should you require a different format, you will have to load the data into an Oracle database and then extract the data with the new format.
