In theory, You would use it aca with verbs of motion However, in reality they are interchangable most of the time but some region one words is peferred over the other.

like aca goes with the command "ven" like come? o i see thank you so much - mamasita_s, ABR 29, 2010
Yes, that is. - nila45, ABR 29, 2010

I would just add that I've gotten the impression that "ven acá" is a bit more forceful--like what you'd use if it was the third time you call someone. To convey something equivalent to "Can you come here, please?" you could say "ven aquí." But I've heard different things from different people, so this distinction may vary by region.
