    Is there a setting or app that I can use with a non BlackBerry flip case that will turn my screen on and off as I open the case

    No, figure out where the mag switch/sensor is on the Priv and glue a magnet to the case is about your only option.

    I know that the official BlackBerry flip case uses a magnet but not sure where it is positioned. I tried moving a magnet all around the front with no luck

    It's about even with the volume up key, 1/2" in. (The window mode sensor is directly below it, even with the vol down key)
    They do not appear to be polarized, but the magnet strength will have to be close to correct. Too weak not working is obvious, but too strong a magnet will also not trigger must mag switches.
