Perhaps you could elaborate on what you have tried so far.  Calling a
user-defined function via MathLink is the same as calling a
mathematica-defined function:

MLPutFunction(theLink, "EvaluatePacket", 1);
	MLPutFunction(theLink, "MyUserFunction", theArgCount);
		...

or

MLPutFunction(theLink, "EvaluatePacket", 1);
	MLPutFunction(theLink, "ToExpression", 1);
		MLPutString(theLink, "MyFunction[1, 2]");

You do need to make sure that your user function has been defined in
Mathematica.  If the code is relatively small, you could include it
directly in your C/C++ source code:

MLPutFunction(theLink, "EvaluatePacket", 1);
	MLPutFunction(theLink, "ToExpression", 1);
		MLPutString(theLink, "MyFunction[a_Integer, b_Integer] = a + b");

or if it is much larger, you can put it into a package (.m) file and
load that file get Get/Needs:

MLPutFunction(theLink, "EvaluatePacket", 1);
	MLPutFunction(theLink, "ToExpression", 1);
		MLPutString(theLink, "Needs[\"MyPackage`\"]");
MLPutFunction(theLink, "EvaluatePacket", 1);
	MLPutFunction(theLink, "ToExpression", 1);
		MLPutString(theLink, "MyFunction[1, 2]");
