Object o = map.get("x");
String s = (String)map.get("x");

If Client objects are stored:

Client c = (Client)map.get("x");
String clientName = c.getName();

           while(true)
            {
                  soc = ss1.accept();
            
                  ObjectInputStream ois = new ObjectInputStream(soc.getInputStream());
                  
                  HashMap hm = (HashMap)ois.readObject();
                  
//                  o = hm.get("crafter");
                  
                  o = new crafter_class();
                                    
                  if(o == null)

You can get all the keys thus:

Set keys = map.keySet();

Set keys = map.keySet();
Iterator iter = keys.iterator();
while (iter.hasNext()) {
      Object o = iter.next();
      if (o instanceof String) {
            System.out.println(o);
      }
}

1. 'keys' are the keys of the HashMap

2. An Iterator is to iterate the keys

3. String key = (String)o;

1. what is 'keys'?
keys is the variable name for your java collection Set Interface check out java.util.Set in the javadocs
2. what is 'Iterator' ?
Iterator is also the interface for moving over a collection of objects.  check out java.util.Iterator
3. how would i get String s = System.out.println(o); (if you know what i mean?)
System.out.pritnln(o) doesnt return you the string. basically what the code given above by CEHJ
means if the object O is an instance/type of java.lang.String then print the string.
