Generally, bullpen catchers are minor league quality players. It is not generally a walk on job. Sometimes players that have been injured are given that job.

Where do pro pitchers warm up before a game?

Pitchers can do their initial warm-ups anywhere, usually some light throwing to warm up their arms in the outfield area. Then they can move into the bullpen where there is a mound and a catcher where the height of the mound and distance to the catcher are identical to the mound and catcher on the playing field. Starting pitchers may use the bullpen for their warm-ups during pre-game ceremonies on the field, then move onto the mound on the field immediately prior to the start of the game, and relief pitchers will use the bullpen prior to going into the game.

Are the seats in section 50 row 3 at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington behind the bullpen?

Sort of. Row 3 is next to the Rangers Bullpen. You will have to turn your head to the left to watch the bullpen. The bullpen will not be in your line of sight if you are watching the batter. Section 50 is a little off. Part of the section (first 10 rows or so) are in front of section 51 and beside the Rangers bullpen while the rest of the section (rows 11-25?) are behind the bullpen and between sections 49 and 51. Depending on what seat you have, you may have a really good view from behind the catcher looking into the bullpen from row 3.
