You will first of all need to ensure that you have physical media server available to configure as Robot Control host.
(I assume that you aware of the fact that Media Manager (tape) devices are not supported in Virtual environments?)

Do physical connection (direct or SAN).
Ensure robot and tape drives are visible at OS level (use 'scan' command to verify).

Use Media section of the GUI to move all tapes in ACS robot to Standalone.
You will also need to physically move the tapes to new robot (if not same robot).

Delete all tape drives and ACS robot on all media servers and restart NBU.
Delete all Storage Units for ACS robot.

Use Device Config wizard to add new TLD devices and STU(s). First select Robot control host and complete config.
If you have more media servers, start wizard again and select Robot Control host and rest of media servers.

Verify Barcode Rules and Inventory robot.

Update policies with new STU(s).

Test....

What type of robot do you have ?

SL8500 require ACSLS and can't be TLD controlled.

Besides that I find ACSLS way better than TLD control. 

Assumption is the mother of all mess ups.
