The best answer is no. Two felinues make you a prohibited person under federal law, and as such it is a crime in Pennsylvania to possess firearms as a prohibited person.
You cannot own or possess a firearm anywhere in the US with a felony conviction. Under federal law a felon cannot possess a firearm or ammunition. Talk to Florida counsel about a full restoration of civil rights or expunging the convictions.

No you may not. Additionally, if you go to a gun shop and attempt to purchase a firearm, you will be required to answer a questionnaire that inquires into your criminal history. If you inaccurately answer that questionnaire, you may be prosecuted for a "Materially False Statement - to Purchase Firearm," a felony charge, likely carrying significant jail time.
