Hi,

Difference is huge. MIDP designed as part of Micro Edition platform and intended for implementation in small devices like mobile phones. It's based on stripped down virtual machine called KVM, doesn't include java.awt, doesn't include reflection, doesn't include java.net, includes only limited set of java.lang classes, if I remember correctly, doesn't have even floating point math.

There is some net and some ui support, but they are placed to different packages and have different functionality.

Personal java is a bit older and less radical.  It includes restricted subset of awt, java.net, most of other core classes. As far as I know, Sun plans to release Personal Profile which will replace PersonalJava and that profile is not close to MIDP (Mobile Information Device Profile), because it is intended to be used in more powerful devices
