You will just be able to transfer the domain name. You need to PM typlo regarding this as you already know. He is the only one who can help.

The Posts & Users can't be transferred to a new database. Forumotion does not allow this.

that tutorial is written but a member and hasn't been approved by staff, we give no guarantee that it works.
Forumotion has closed access to databases to increase security. I don't believe Typlo will give you access to MySQL data ... many others have tried.

If you don't delete your forum, it would still be there.
