For the most part that can be done really easily, look up 'splitdiff'...

from outside the directory, or inside it, depending on where you took
the patch from
patch -d phpMyAdmin -p 1 -s --dry-run <diff_file

tweak the -d parameter (you might try '.' if you are in the directory)
tweak the -p parameter (change to 0 if using '.')
take out --dry-run once you don't get any errors displayed.
and it will then apply.
