I think I am familiar with the basics of creating a new mail database and then moving the mailboxes. The question is, how do i get the users to connect to the new database?

You will need to move the users to the new database, Simply right click over the user account and click on move from here select the new storage group\newdatabase and click on ok but keep one tihing in mind that moving a bulk of more then 10 users is not recommended. Also you will need to check the curropted messages settings during the move.

Once you mount a new Database it is up and running.
Then like @abhijitmdq said you will have to right click on a user Mailbox and choose the option move.

Here you will have to choose the target database as the new Database you created.
Once the move is completed the AD updates the attributes of the user pointing it to the new Database.

You can move smaller mailboxes at one shot and larger once individually.
The choose is your and u can make the choice depending on how big the Mailboxes are.

Once you have moved all the users from the Old Database then you can dismount it and then choose the option to delete the Old Database.
