In brief: No.

They are not related.
to tear your ACL, you have to incur a traumatic injury to the knee.

In brief: Possible?

Acl tears are usually traumatic but can be due to chronic overuse due unstable feet.
Bunions are associated with pronated flat feet which can cause excess torque on the knee joint ligaments which weaken and stretch out leading to tears.
