Just so I am clear - You never served your sentence? What was the crime?
I suggest that if you go to get a passport your warrant for your arrest is going to come up and you will not be able to get a passport or return to the US. Though they may arrest you and send you to Florida
Because you did not serve your sentence and left the country you are a Fugitive from Justice.
What is no extradite - You mean you would not travel into Flordia but maybe instead CA?
That is not the issue The issue is you are a fugitive from justice and so even if you get a passport from the country you are in - at point of entry they are going to detain you. Now, they will detain you until it is determined that Florida does not want to extradite you. And so you will be arrested before you are released. Also, it may be very well that at point of entry because you are a felon fugitive they will not allow you in to the US at all.
It is not a crime in the US to leave without a passport. So no, you cannot be charged with such a crime.
I suggest, however you will run into other problems such as I mentioned above.
