Does ACCA or ICAEW help in equity research and analysis?
Short answer no. Equity research (sell or buy side) requires you to do research by gathering data. Data includes financial results that is available publicly (this is where ACCA/ icaew) knowledge provides you some familiarity when you were tasked to gather the right information. Other information are non financial such as industry metrics, market data or customer survey. Each industry has its own niche.

CFA is more relevant as it covers more areas that is relevant to a portfolio manager that is more similar to equity research than an accountant.

Either way, even if you have ACCA/icaew or CFA for that matter, that does not give you an automatic ticket to get recruited to top funds houses as most require sufficient working experience as they have a very small team. More luck with small institutions. By the time you get it, you may find it too troublesome to match other opportunities.
