Firstly, we do not have "residencies" in the UK. Have a look at the standard terms and information on career progression here: http://www.mmc.nhs.uk/ Our system is not completely equivalent to the intern/resident/(fellowship)/attending system they have in the USA. You seem to have got a lot of different stages, exams and processes mixed up, so the MMC website will be very helpful.

If you want to come to the UK to work, you can either come here straight after medical school, into Foundation year 1, or you can do your internship in Bulgaria and come here for FY2 (which is a general year involving rotating between specialties), or you can get more experience and apply here for core medical training. You have to do two years of rotating through different medical specialties, hopefully some in dermatology, and then you apply for dermatology registrar posts. You will have to pass MRCP parts 1, 2 and PACES, but not MRCS/MRCGP (they are for surgery and general practice respectively) during your two core medical training years. Applications for registrar level jobs usually involve a written application and then an interview. You may need to take some extra time at this stage to get enough dermatology experience to be able to have a competitive application for a registrar job. Registrar training is then at least 5 years, and may take more time if you want to get extra experience in a subspecialty field. Then you will be a consultant.

I am not sure what the requirements will be in terms of PLAB and IELTS for someone from within the EU.

In short, no...you have the entire process completely wrong. You need to thoroughly look into the training process as it is clear just from your terminology that you don't know much about how postgraduate training is in the UK.

Firstly, you need to consider the immigration side of things,
"Bulgarian and Romanian nationals - with 12 months continuous employment in the UK. Can take up a training programme subject to obtaining either an accession worker card or registration certificate"

Then you will need to peruse the MMC site Helenia gave to get an understanding of the (rather complex) way postgraduate medical training is delivered in this country.
