What would happen if equal amount of vinegar and lime water were mixed?

The two would partially neutralize each other. The "equal amount" part is meaningless in this case, because we don't know the concentrations. If you meant equal molar amounts of calcium hydroxide and ethanoic acid, you'd wind up with a very slightly basic solution because it takes two moles of ethanoic acid to completely react with calcium hydroxide.
