Will my child need to be put into a respirator for their pulmonary aspergillosis?

In brief: No

Patients are put on respirators for respiratory failure.
As long as your child can oxygenate properly, this will not be necessary. It is for him to receive proper treatment, either with a pulmonologist or an allergist.

In brief: Is depends

The real question is why you child has pulmonary aspergillosis- are they immune system not working properly, or is there structural lung disease.
You can also have asthma / allergic broncho pulmonary aspergillosis which usually can be controlled with inhalers and medications and does not need a respirator.
