Like Gangplank's Parely, does the bonus damage crit?

It doesn't really need to, though. A well-farmed Nasus can have it doing ridiculous damage as is, imagine how scary it would be if Nasus had last hit 200 minions with it. 400+ bonus damage, plus a crit, plus Infinity Edge.

Its not a point and click rather an additive bonus to your next attack.

So the skill itself cannot crit,your attack WITH it can though.

Same for blitz's power fist.

Now if only Tiamat would allow him to farm multiple stacks...I can kill 4 minions in one hit with SS but only one stack

Siphoning Strike itself cannot crit, but the attack it is modifying can. Typically, most Nausus builds call for Sheen/Trinity to further increase the damage from Siphoning Strike.

btw how does sheen increase the damage on siphon? if you dont do an ap build and you get sheen then wouldnt it only increase the damage by the 25 ap that sheen provides? And if so then isnt sheen kind of a waste to buy for nasus?

Sheen doesn't work like that. It increases your next attack by 80% of your damage and that's all.

Sheen and Trinity increase your base damage by a percentage of your ATTACK DAMAGE. Lichbane is the only one that uses AP as the modifier value, and lichbane gives you 80 AP.

Correct me if i'm wrong but isn't Siphon Strike damage pretty much

Base attack (can crit) + modifiers such as sheen / farmed damage (can't crit)
so basically
100 + 100(from sheen) and 50 from farming.
you'd do 200 + 150 if you crit since only the base attack value gets 2x
