I understand "venga" is a slang term meaning come on but I can't find a good meaning for "paca."

"Paca" is a short for "Francisca" (a woman's name), like Bob for Robert.

"Pacá" is a way to write "para acá" when it is pronounced quick and informally (although "pa' cá" is clearer).

They are pronounced differently with or without the accent on the "a".

Probably it's "venga pa' acá" = "come (over) here. "venga" isn't slang it's the imperative (usted) form of "venir" = "to come". The "pa' acá" is simply a very informal pronunciation of "para acá" ="to/toward here".
