When you play Pyromatics and then pay and play the replicate ability, is that considered "playing another spell", since its a copy of the original spell? For example, will the Wee Dragonauts get +2/+0 for each time you replicate?

No. Replicate tells you to copy the spell. The Dragonauts trigger when you play a spell. (Verbs emphasized for clarity.)
