How to connect my application to MySQL from MS SQL

I am the owner of ManagePro software, I just took over the company in April 2018, currently, the application requires an MSSQL instance to work, I want to use MySQL instead, but the app does not connect to the SQL server in the usual way that I have used in the past.

When I start the app, and it can't find the default instance name it is looking for I get a settings box, to fix the issue I just change this .\MANAGEPRO to .\SQLEXPRESS

This, of course, is because the local machine has the server on it, and then I just point it to the instance name.

If the server was remote it would be this servername\instance

So my question is how do I mimic this with MySQL?
