Welcome to the good side of life!

First of all you need to install MyBB on your website and then you can use the merge system here: http://www.mybb.com/downloads/merge-system

Download a new MyBB and install it on web hosting.

I add a new database and then what .....

Hi boka, and welcome to MyBB, where free never tasted so good.

Once you have created the database and made sure all files are uploaded and CHMODded correctly, then go to http://[[yourforumurl]]/install . Run through the wizard until you complete everything.

Then upload the MyBB Merge system ( http://www.mybb.com/downloads/merge-system ) to your forum root. After that, go to http://[[yourforumurl]]/merge . (IIRC)

Enter the database details of the SMF database and then the tools will need to be run in order by dependencies, which will be listed on the tools page.

If you encounter any errors with these directions, let us know so that we can help!

For more info about running the merge system, see http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:ka7ASEV8x2wJ:wiki.mybb.com/index.php/Running_the_Merge_System+&cd=3 (wiki is down, so this is a Google cache link).
