The early morning hours of JFK are not the busiest. There is definitely traffic arriving, a combination of red-eyes from the west coast and overnight long-hauls from JFK.
Avianca arrives into JFK at Terminal Four. Jet Blue is at Terminal Six. If the weather is good, you could walk, but there is a bus that connects the terminals from outside security. Someone more familiar with JFK needs to update that - I know it exists, but I am not familiar with its operations.
I think you should be okay making your connection; however, with the U.S. and JFK, anything is possible. Also, how long of a connection do you have at JFK on the return?
Please give us a trip report when you get back!!

That shuld be enough time. Early morning is light re: Customs and Immigration, so you should be OK. No guarantees though. If you're taking luggae just take Airtrain, the sidewalks are really non-existent from terminal to terminal esp if you are lugging luggage.
Hard to say which side of plane, but Bogota to NY I'd maybe be on the left side for Manhattan views but the right side is cooler for the Canarsie approach in my opinion. Left side is also cool for flying up the US coast as you get to see all the barrier islands, Chesapeake Bay, Sandy Hook, etc.
Don't know about PIT never been there.
I may be ugly. I may be an American. But don't call me an ugly American.

Never had a problem with the mornings at JFK, especially arriving (departures can get a little backed up due to some morning rush outbound, but never a problem arriving). 2.5 hours is more than enough time to clear customs and make your way over to T6.
