I do believe so. If they run his name a warrant from any state will show up. The state he is in would arrest him and he would be transported back to the state of the warrant. BUT I'm not 100% sure

This is usually how warrants work.

It depends on the type of warrant. for serious crimes the warrant is valid everywhere. For less serious offenses it may only be valid in state.

Depends, but most likely because child support has become such an issue. Too many dead beat dads that don't pay for their children leaving the mothers to depend on some kind of support from the government.

Yes, yes he can. Hopefully, he never gets stopped for anything.

Yes he can. However some states won't extradite to other states, so they might no,t even when they see the warrant come up. If the state you are in discovers where he is, and they won't extradite him, they can garnish his wages in order to collect current and past due  child support.
