Use the mono_assembly_load APIs. Either those which take a
MonoAssemblyName argument or mono_assembly_load_with_partial_name
which takes an (partial) assembly name specified by a string.

You may want to look up "assembly name" on MSDN. E.g, the
shortest assembly name of System.Drawing.dll is


which you can pass to mono_assembly_load_with_partial_name (),
and call it a day.
