generally -ing is a slang way of saying doing something. So it is doing whatever you do on an early morning. basically means nothing without context.

I just tried the urban dictionary which defines this as the action of waking up in the morning after wild late night bash.

If it's a Dutch engineer who used this expression it means s/he works as ing (the title they have) only early in the morning. I wonder what the person does the rest of the day.

Early Morning is a reference to propagation of the species.

so if you were in the habit of early morning-ing, then over a period of time could you be described as indulging in early morning-ing-ing?

And is it late evening-ing or late evening-vening?

We use the "-ing" ending to talk about actions in progress, but it is also used to transform a noun or a subject (in this case "early morning") into an action (a verb). So, "early morning-ing" is "the action of (waking up) in the early morning" or "waking up early in the morning".
