Let say I work at a data-center that has a network infrastructure (dhcp server, etc...) of it's own. I do not want to configure neutrons dhcp servers , open-vswitch, tenant networks. I just want my VM configured with the specific NIC and Networking will be done by some other network infrastructure.

While googling, I think "Provider Network" Is what I need. However I also want to use cloud-init and HEAT and I assume that the deployed VMs need a way to talk to the metadata-proxy( I am not sure if "Provider Network" has the capability to do that.

So in summary my question is ... 1. Is the "Provider Network" the right choice when I don't want openstack to do the networking ? 2. Is it possible to use HEAT and cloud-init while achieving the above ?

To answer the heat/cloud-init portion of your question, you can always configure nova to enable config drive so that boot metadata can be delivered without a metadata-proxy.
