We are building a protal and using LDAP as the authentication mechanism and data is stored at the back end on IBM directory server v5.2. I plan to use Exchange server with Active directory for messaging on my portal.
I am looking to find ways/option in which I can integrated Active directory and IBM directory server? Is it easy/difficult and what is the best mechanism to do so?

You could use MIIS, There is a supported management agent for IBM directory server v5.2....
I would check out the Technical Reference and also the scenarios to get started...
Here's an area to get started...
The simple provisioning scenario will give you a good place to start for the actual details for setting up everything..

Will this management agent provide synchronization of directories? If there any documentaiton specific to synchronization/replication/etc for AD and IBM directory v 5.2? If so, can you point me to that documentation?

We are actually supporting the Directory Server up to 6.0.
There is from us no specific AD / IBM Directory Server related documentation. However, you definitely get what you need from the available documentation.
A management agent (MA) is an interface between a connected data source and MIIS aka “bilingual data pump”. Your scenario requires two management agents – the ADMA and the IBMDS MA.
The objective of MIIS is to aggregate the authoritative identity data parts from various connected data sources into one authoritative view of a real world identity and to update non authoritative identity data parts with authoritative data – this is more than just replicating data.
Just making sure – MIIS does not provide authentication.
