I'm don't think you can use the Visual Studio Server Explorer to connect to MySQL. Most people manage their MySQL instances with MySQL Administrator which is free from the MySQL site:

As mnasman mentioned you normally use the Connector/Net to connect to MySQL very similar to SQL Server because they are both ADO.NET drivers.

download mysql from their site, also download the .Net data provider
mysql installation is very easy, then you use it with vs as you can use sql server or access
