Welcome to AutoIt and the forum!

Did you search the forum? As far as I remember there have been a few discussions about how to connect to an AS400 emulation.
Make sure to understand the difference between automating the GUI and using COM to automate the API provided by the emulator.

I had been using IBM Personal Communications and Mochasot to connect to mainframe hosts. 

IBM Personal Communications has built-in macro function and has session parameters saved in .Ws file. 

If I remember correctly, MochaSoft client also allows to use command line to execute client launch and connect to host.
