If someone is a fugitive from justice with the charge of failure to appear on a bench warrant having to do with back child support, is this considered a felony in PA, and will they extradite an inmate being held in New York State for this? If so, what is the potential jail time with no prior felonies ?

It is not a criminal violation at all. It simply what it says it is. A warrant issued by the judge before whom he was supposed to appear to address failure to comply with a support order. Extradition on such a warrant seems very unlikely, but support orders can and will be enforced by other states so he could end up in jail in NY for the same thing.
