In this code there is a function to get the type of a Service "get_service_type()": How can I do that from C++?

What are you trying to achieve with this? Are you just trying to get the name of the service type, or will you try to call it after you've retrieved the type?

I believe the functionality you're looking for is already implemented as a service in the rosapi package and it can be accessed natively from roslibjs via the getServices method.
