So the question on this site about how Compound Eyes works says that it increases the chance of a Pokemon appearing with an item by 50%. Does this mean that the chance becomes 50%, or that the chance adds 50% (like if a Pokemon had a 5% chance of holding an item it would become 7.5%.) Also, can the lead Pokemon with Compound Eyes be fainted and still have the same effect?

In all instances except for Gen 5, Wild Pokémon have a 50% or a 5% chance to hold a Item. In Gen 5, some Pokémon have a 1% chance to hold a 3rd item in dark grass. With Compound Eyes, the odds increase from 1% to 5%, 5% to 20% and 50% to 60%.

The Pokémon can be fainted as well and still have the effect.
