Our fiber plant is 50/125 micron laser optimized.   We are having problem with one legacy piece of equipment.. manufacturer is indicating they support 62.5/125 micron fiber.  Is there any way to mix.. ie using 62.5 micron patch cables... or is there an adapter made?

I've never seen a converter or adapter between the 2 sizes. This links explains the loss you may expect from mixing the two.

generally speaking, they are fully interchangeable
I would use a 50/125 patch cable from IDF to the device
