What strings for acoustic guitar would be the best ones to play Punk/Rock/Metal with. Stuff like Good Charlotte, Nickelback, Framing Hanley, so on?

I've heard good about Elixir, and Ernie Ball, anything you could recommend? and what string size aswell?

there is no "whats good for this style?" string. theres only whats good for you. it's impossible for someone else to tell you what will sound/feel good to you. you picked up the ibanez right? a lot of that stuff is drop tuned to D. hope you have a built in tuner,
