Hi

You need to have an attorney who is licensed in the state where you were indicted if you want legal representation.

So if you were indicted in NY you need to have a NY licensed attorney regardless of where you live.

Hi

Yes, if you hire an attorney, they may enter into a plea on your behalf and have the warrant quashed. Yes. Must be a licensed attorney in the state where you were charged
