I had some doubts of the usage of とする in this sentence "計画や希望などを現実のものとすること。" Does it mean "to assume something" in this specific case?
Moreover is the の after 実現 a nominalizer, assuming that in highly formal contexts する can be omitted?
Thank you in advance!

to make one's plans and hopes into a reality
現実のもの means "something which is actualized". の here is not a nominalizer. の is just the genative particle which often can be translated into English as "which is..."
AをBとする is a fixed expression meaning "to make A B".
