    The reason the text is so crisp is two things -
    1. In photoshop you probably have some of the text anti-aliasing filters on, switch them to none.
    2. Choose a typeface specifically designed for being small. Adobe itself has 2, and should be somewhere on the photoshop CD, or goodies, they're called Photoshop Large, and small. Theyre used in the pallette titles. Also there's one called ADMUI35m which may be with Photoshop. You can also get a range of 'pixel' fonts @ http://********fonts.com

    As to the icons, well I think you're gonna have to get down and dirty in photoshop yourself, pixel by pixel. I guess there's no getting around it.
