That parent would be in violation of a court order, so yes, they would be in trouble. The adult makes the decisions, not the child. The child should be put into a car and driven home.

What happens to the custodial parent if the child refuses to visit the noncustodial parent in Ohio?

The child can't refuse, they are too young to decide for themselves. It's the parents job to make them go and the custodial parent have to follow the court order. If not he/she will get into legal trouble because they will be reported to the court for not following the courts orders. It's better to work together even if you don't get along as parents because getting picked up by the police and taken from the home to the other one is unnecessary and traumatic for the child. As responsible adults you can prevent this and follow the agreement.

Yes she most certainly can, especially in Indiana.

They must adhere to visitation guidelines or the custodial parent will face contempt charges and possibly face fines or even jail time.

Will a non custodial parent get into legal trouble if they let their child live with them because the child refuses to go home to the custodial parent?

You need to sort it out with the other parent first and then in court. You should be very certain that the child's wish to stay with you is not the result of disagreement with something reasonable the other parent is asking. You are the parent, and while the child's wish is flattering, you have to use good judgement. Yes, in order for you to avoid "legal trouble" you must have the custody and visitation orders modified. Until they are modified you must follow the court ordered visitation schedule. You cannot allow the child to stay with you in violation of the custody order. Very often a child will naturally want to live with the more permissive parent. You need to make certain this is not the case and try to work out the problems that have led to the child not wanting to return the the custodial parent.

Can a 12 year old child refuse to go with a non custodial parent?

Not without getting the custodial parent in deep trouble if the visit with the non-custodial parent is court ordered. The custodial parent would be found in contempt of court and fined, even possibly jailed for their failure to make sure their child upholds court ordered visitation. If there is a compelling and legitimate reason why the child does not want to visit the non-custodial parent, a motion for modification of the original visitation order may be granted, however the reasons would have to be significant and proven. Something like, "I don't like him/her" or "I don't want to" or "They make me go to bed at 9pm" aren't good enough.
