I have been in a similar situation but eventually we decide not to go ahead. General speaking, there are a few things you will need to worry when you migrating database across platform.

First, you will try to recreate the schema at the other end.
Then enable the connection between the databases on both platform.
Next is move to data across (think about SSIS).
After that, worry about is there is any stored procedure or function is not working with the new platform because the built-in function is not there anymore.
if you ever success after this point, do test it on your app. If you pass a good throughout regression testing on the app, then it should be good.

It is very broad overview and it is manual work. See if that is what you can manage to go through..

Good Luck.
