How do I move programs and data from a HDD to a SSD?

I am in the process of upgrading a computer and I have a new SSD that I want to run the OS and as many of the programs as possible. The old HDD still works and I still want to use it in this computer. The old HDD is 1 tb and has about 350gb used up. The new SSD is a samsung 840 pro that is 128gb. Obviously it is too small to have all of the info on there.

I downloaded EaseUS Partition manager, but now I do not know how to go about selecting files to transfer over to the new SSD.

Can anyone help me out with this? My tech level is fairly low when it comes to software, putting the hardware together was not an issue...

You have a few options depending on how you configured the SSD at install.  If the SSD is where Windows is at, there really isn't anything you can do aside from uninstalling the programs and reinstalling them on the SSD.  If the SSD is not Windows, you can copy the needed programs over to the SSD, then change its drive letter to whatever it was on the old drive since Windows looks at drive paths.  When I upgraded from a standard drive to an SSD, I chose the first option then cloned the drive but you may not be able to do this.
