Is it possible to sync iMessages on an iPhone and iPad? So that new iMessages go to the iPad too?
Some messages come through to both, but only for one contact..... I think.

Yes, you should be able to maintain iMessage conversations across multiple iDevices.
What's important is this: your contacts must reach you under the same 'caller ID' - on iPhones that is usually your phone number by default; while on the iPad it is your Apple account email.
Obviously, if no phone number is assigned to your iPad, it cannot receive iMessages sent to a phone number. So: your 'caller ID' (or 'send/receive ID') oughta be your Apple account email address! It is described in the thread below.
So, on both devices, in Settings => iMessages set the send/receive ID to the same email account that you registered with Apple.
