I have this young tree out in the back garden (see pic b). It's about 8ft high. Would like to identify it if possible.

I also noticed that there was some kind of parasite/bug on the end of the branches. Little black things. Any idea what these are? See pics a and c.

Trying to train it to grow sideways instead of out because it blocks a lot of light entering in through the patio door at the back. Is it ok to trim it this time of year?

looks like Embothrium coccineum shrub not sure and they are probably aphids attacking.

I know it's been a year since your original post, but if you're still wondering what your tree is, I´m sure it`s a willow and I'd say it's the species Salix Atrocinerea or Rusty Sallow. You can see it´s not an Exochorda or Embothrium by the presence of auricles (those small wings growing from the base of the leaf stalks).
This species usually has slightly reddish young leaves.
