"We were swallowing beer by the can and trying to see who can belch louder."
"I'm having a burp coming up."
Does it have the same meaning? Are these words synonyms?
Can we say for a beer especially the bad one "belch"?

"Burp" imitates the noise, and is mostly informal; "belch" describes the action, and can be used in formal or informal contexts.
Try: "...and trying to see who could belch the loudest".
