There's only one ini file. And the word "open" appears nowhere in the Mod Manager 1.6.0 readme.
And the readme doesn't give any instructions regarding the ini. It's just a text file that contains some settings.

Python is a collection of tools and pre-written code that makes it significantly easier to write programs. Developers write a text file (named something.py) with instructions in a language called Python, and a command named python interprets those instructions to do otherwise tedious/complicated things like manipulate a video game's files to add new ships.
The readme says "run main.py via python".
Or open a terminal. Type "python " with the space. Drag main.py onto the terminal to quickly type its location. And hit enter.
