Others will chime in on where you can get them. But I would not keep them with small catfish regardless of their size. Select other small, slow moving, non-aggressive, calm water fish to live with them.

Naturally observing the "fit in the mouth" rule is wise with such a predatory group of fishes. I'd say a Bullhead will grow and almost certainly eat it's tankmates.
In my opinion pirate perch are pretty easy to keep since they don't seem to require much more than a little structure and regular food. They seem to need a little training before they take pellets (sinking to be specific) but an attractive fish that isn't particularly social.
As far a legally keeping them in Ohio....You might want to check with Ohio forum members/Ohio DNR on this. It's possible Ohio recognizes subspecies and you could buy or collect from a different location to avoid legal issues.
