AFAIK you can't do what you're showing.  This will work, but is not advised:

    eval('$myArray = array(' . $myString . ');');
    print ("array val: $myArray[username]");   // array val: password

Why are you needing to store the array indexes and values in a string
like this?  Maybe we can give you an alternative approach.
