Mysql using multiple databases

I am looking at parts of my application to access data from two separate databases.

I am just wondering what sort of resources this uses as I am trying to understand it better.

There is only a small amount of data in the other database it needs to access.  For system performance am I better to put the table and data into the one database?  I would prefer not to double up the same data into two databases if I can, but am interested in the performance side, especially if I have a large number of users on this, as hoped.

I would appreciate advice from an expert on this.
