does anyone who knows both R and SAS have an idea what is the equivalent of As.Name() function in R? What As.Name() does is using a string value of one variable as another variable name.

The SAS procedure that is closest to R is SAS/IML. In SAS/IML, you can use the VALUE and VALSET functions to get or assign values to matrices whose name is given by a string. See the article Indirect assignment: How to create and use matrices named x1, x2,…, xn - The DO Loop
