Yes it is possible, depending on your state, and if you remain crime free for a good number of years. Of course, you will not be permitted to own or carry a firearm. I actually know of a Pennsylvania State Parole Officer who was convicted of 3rd degree murder or manslaughter.

Does a federal probation officer care if a convicted felon goes to another state to visit another convicted felon?

It depends on the conditions of probation. Often, a condition of probation is that the felon can't leave the state without permission. Further, another frequent condition of probation is that the felon can't associate with other felons. If you have a document that outlines the conditions of your probation, read it carefully for these conditions. If you don't have the document in question (and I know this probably isn't what you want to hear), ask your probation officer if this is permissible. It's the only way to know for sure.

CAUTION: Not all nations will grant persons convicted of certain crimes permission to enter their country.

If he has served the full term of his sentence and is not on parole or probation, yes. HOWEVER - if they are on parole or probation it would not be unusual for one of the conditions of their release to be that they not associate with known felons. THAT might prevent them from holding employment at a place where another convicted felon is employed.
