This is something I've wanted to do for a while and I just haven't had the time to set things up. I played a bit of this on the PS3 and really wanted to try out the multiplayer mode. I'm also interested in testing out Metal Gear Online featured in Snake Eater, but PPSSPP is easier to run than PCSX2 and there are no analog buttons involved so you don't need a Dualshock 3.
The default settings in the most recent release of PPSSPP should be enough, but just make sure that you have networking enabled, the ad hoc server is myneighborsushicat.com
, port offset is zero, and that the virtual MAC address has been randomized, which you can do by clicking on it a few times. PPSSPP should also have a firewall exemption.
Aside from that, I don't know what ports have to be opened. If it's anything like Monster Hunter, you'll probably need to open a specific UDP port for lobbies and six TCP ports for co-op/versus. I assume you'll be in the clear if your router has DMZ, but I've never tried it with this. If you've ever played this game like this, please explain.
Just like with Portable 3rd, this game was updated with an HD texture pack when ported to PS3. The link to the texture pack will be included below. In order to install it, open PPSSPP, start Peace Walker, and go to Settings > Tools > Developer tools
. At the bottom, make sure that "Replace textures" is enabled and click on "Create/Open textures.ini file for current game". This will create a new directory called ULUS10509
, which is found in memstick > PSP > TEXTURES
within your emulator directory. Replace ULUS10509
with the HD version.

No idea if there's any anti-piracy measures.
This is just a list of problems I expect to come up:
