I would like to integrate OpenFoam's wind pressure coefficients values on the building surface with my Openstudio energy model to accurately calculate the building surfaces' temperatures. Is there a way to do that?

As placeholders, you could map wind pressure coefficients here (linked to surfaces here), and have an EMS controller adapt exterior surface convection heat transfer coefficients at runtime - a basic setup. The calculations from site wind speed/direction + surface-mapped coefficients ... to local surface velocities would need to be deployed within the EMS controller.
