Nope. In fact, I'd dare say there isn't any medium speed (over 120 km/h) project anywhere in this country. Basically our current and somewhat future infrastructure (at least the one projected) will not be ready for such incredible numbers for quite some time...

And I seriously doubt they will reach said max speed soon. Not on Argentine railways, anyway...

How are the works on the BA-Rosario line going? Has that dreadful 6 hour time it takes for the train to cover the route been brought down yet?

Yes, the works continues. Until the works are done the trains cannot go any faster

Are there no partial openings scheduled? In Romania at least, such a long distance (300 km) would be opened in stretches, not as a finished "product".

The work were divided in 11 stretches. First they renovated the Buenos Aires->Rosario (ascendente) track. Now they are working in the Rosario->Buenos Aires (descendente) track. It takes 6 hours because the trains have to use 1 track. When the works are finished the trains could go faster using the 2 tracks

What would the top speed be?

A limited stop train going 130 or 140 km/h could do the trip in just over 2 hours, which would be respectable and beat buses driving at highway speeds.

The trains have a top speed of 160 km/h, so it might be around those numbers.
