I would like to know how to  link two forms together (both .cs and both forms)

Well really it's when the user clicks on the button it takes them to another form.

Lets say the class names of your two forms were Form1 and Form2.  on the click event of the button, you could do

Form2 newForm = new Form2();
newForm.Show();

You may want to define the second form as a member for the first so that you can have a reference to it.  make the class a private member variable in your class:

private Form2 newForm;

and then from your click event add this instead:
newForm = new Form2()
newForm.Show();
