*(DWORD*)((DWORD)toHook + 1) = relativeAddress; // <-- I DID NOT UNDERSTAND THIS

that says
dereference the pointer
that has been cast to a dword pointer
from the address of tohook+1 (tohook[1]) (where 1 means sizeof(dword) in bytes)

and finally at that dereferenced value, assign it relative address.

--------
not sure what you want but generally if you have a "string" in a register, its going to be the address of the first location of a C style string. This is a weird mashup of windows specific gibberish & assembly, and its a bit much for my brain today to tell you what else to do if simply casting out the pointer in eax back to a char* and seeing if it is what you want does not work.
Thanks for replay ,
*(DWORD*)((DWORD)toHook + 1) = relativeAddress
i understand this code thanks so much.

i have a string in a register , all i need copy the string from register to value , But I don't know how to do it by c++ .


c++ does not talk to registers directly. you have to use embedded assembly, which varies from compiler to compiler and system to system, to get at it.
assuming its a pointer, you need something like
char *cp;
__asm
{
mov cp, EAX;
}
string s{cp}; //optional convert c-string to c++ string

if its a short string and the actual letters are in the register, the easiest thing to do is copy the register into an integer and cast the integer to a char* in c++

Thanks for answer jonnin ,
When printing, strange letters appear, knowing that the word is "hi"
