Is myocardial infarction more likely with premature ventricular contractions happening?

Possibly. Depends if pvcs are becoming more frequent ... Can potentially lead to ventricular tachycardia and possibly ventricular fibrillation, the latter essentially is cardiac arrest ...
PVCs and MI. Premature ventricular contractions mean that there is irritability in the heart muscle and normal heart rhythm which starts from high up in the atria is inturrupted in some beats and those beats are originating in the ventricle.Bot it does not mean that it is directly due to mi.But you can get pvcs with mi.Occasional pvcs are not serious but if it comes from many foci and in runs it can be seriou.

What is the most common complication of early myocardial infarction?

Arrhythmia. The most common early complication of myocardial infarction is arrhythmia typically ventricular fibrillation. If this occurs in the hospital, it responds promptly to cardioversion. If it occurs outside the hospital it can result in sudden death. The highest period of risk occurs in the first 48 hours. Read more...
Heart failure. The most common complication is arrhythmia which can occur very early in mi. If it's ventricular fibrillation as it tends to be in about 50% of cases, the result is sudden death. Heart block and atrial fibrillation also occur. Other common complications are recurrent pain and congestive heart failure. Less common is thromboembolism (systemic and pulmonary) causing stroke or pe and pericarditis. Read more...

Small myocardial infarction with Small -medium pharmacologically induced myocardial ischemia in that distribution. What are the the implications?

Reversible defect? If you're describing what we term a "reversible defect", wherein the heart seems OK at rest and not OK when stimulated (by exercise or medication), then this would mean that area of the heart is still vulnerable to damage (heart attack). This needs to be addressed and treated. You may need cardiac catheterization to define the anatomy of the vessel supplying that area with blood. Read more...

What is the difference between myocardial infarction and a acute coronary syndrome?

Continuum. Both are a result of inadequate blood supply to the heart muscle. Acute coronary syndrome means that the imbalance is sufficient to cause symptoms that prompt aggressive intervention, but may not result in permanent heart damage; a myocardial infarction implies that overt heart damage has occurred, hence positive markers of tissue damage.
