Is it possible that a particle traveling so close to c from its reference frame observes objects within their schwarzschild radius? In other words is it possible that in these particles reference frames is a universe primarily comprised of black holes? If so then would gravity be relative?

No (wrt relative black holes).

Wrt, "would gravity be relative", I guess you would have to define what you mean by that.
