do you mean that you have ipb3 database and you want to use it for MyBB
if so, see MyBB Merge system

^ you have SQL dump of ipb3 - that can be imported to a new database on your web host to use for the Merge system

how huge it is ? you can try using bzip version (try compressing with 7-zip) or make parts of zip / gzip archive
if you are comfortable in paying then you may hire experienced persons here
