From the Web Platform Installer 3.0, I'm assuming that I would Add MySQL Windows 5.1 and MySQL Connector/Net 6.2.3 correct?
Then I will be able to use MySQL instead of SQL Management Studio on SQL Server 2008? I'm not exactly sure what windows database system I will be replacing if I use MySQL.
Is this how I would set it up though? and do most people use MySQL with ASP.NET?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Yes its right way also you can use MysqlYog (a third party software) to run queries and be able to use mysql as mssql.
do most people use MySQL with ASP.NET?
I think no! most of ASP.NET developers uses MS Sql only.

You can use either MySql Workbench (similar to MS SQL Server Management Studio) or a web admin tool like phpMyAdmin.
Few people use MySql with ASP.NET. Majority of them use SQL Server along with ASP.NET

With MySQL Connector/NET 6.xx and MySQL 5 and above, it's just as easy to use MySQL with ASP.NET just like MS SQL Server.
If you're used to MS SQL Server + Management Studio, you can use:
MySQL + HeidiSQL (they're both free)
With MySQL Connector/NET 6.xx + MySQL 5, you can use ASP.NET SQLDataSource the way you use it with MS SQL Server.
I am using MySQL with ASP.NET out of necessity. The database in my office is MySQL and I'm an ASP.NET programmer.

Cloud hosted MySql. There are tiered levels for growth. The main thing here is that Amazon handles the setup, backups, etc. There are options for setting the the data center region or multi-region. Basically, if you use an ORM then this takes most of
the DBA work off your plate.
