I don’t think there is a function you can call to do this. When you set the save/load terms options for a taxonomy field ACF calls WP functions with the right info to make this happen.
When saving the field ACF calls wp_set_object_terms() https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_set_object_terms
When loading the field ACF calls wp_get_object_terms() https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_get_object_terms
You can get more information about what ACF is doing by looking at the file for the taxonomy field /advanced-custom-fields-pro/includes/fields/class-acf-field-taxonomy.php.
I think that in order to do what you want that you’ll need to call these WP functions yourself.
