Where can I get an analytical relation of the stellar Main Sequence Relation? Most papers cite only the slope and not the intercept. Is there a way to extract the analytical function in some way?

You refer to the plot of galaxy star formation rate versus galaxy stellar mass?

If you want to approximate this relation with a given functional form, you could fit it (using e.g. data from the group catalogs of a given TNG simulation).
