passwords aren't stored in just md5
They are hasshed a few times, and they have a unique salt.

The pass table: xf_user_authenticate

Ask support from them perhaps? Ask if they support the integration with xenforo software. As the passwords are stored in a different table than the users, and dont just use "md5"
It's a bit scary that there is software out there storing passwords in only md5 hashes. Todays rainbow tables are massive.

Open your forums "library/config.php" file. All information needed is stored in that, including your database password in plain format.

You sure your not at the install screen, were you have to set-up a different database (from forums) beforehand it will use, then enter that information into that install screen? Then as for User Name and User Password, those get created on install so you can enter what you want there for yourself, use same as you use on forums for name and password for example?

Not sure, but it makes me think that.
