You will not be retried or receive a new ticket in PA for the what happened in NJ. PA and NJ participate in the National Driver Registry. The National Driver Register keeps tabs on "drivers who have had their licenses revoked or suspended, or who have been convicted of serious traffic violations. violations such as driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs.
When it comes time to renew you drivers license, if you have not fulfilled the punishment in NJ for your offense your license renewal will be flagged until you clear the violation with NJ. So for example if your license was suspended and you have continued to drive, you would need to go back to NJ to clear up that situation. If all you get is a ticket and pay the ticket there should be not problems.
my full ?was not answed it continued asking can I receive house arrest in NJ if convicted in Pennsylvania for the Pennsylvania dui
No, as I stated you cannot be retried for an offense in NJ. You cannot serve a sentence in NJ based on a sentence received in PA. NJ has no jurisdiction over anything you did in PA. NJ has the ability to block license renewal if the PA matter is not cleared up.
