If you are trying to find WHERE a command is mapped, C-h w <command-
name> runs where-is and gives you the keystroke-sequence

If you are trying to find the NAME of a command, C-h k <keystroke-
sequence> runs describe-key and gives you the command-name mapped to
the keystroke-sequence.

Once you know the name, then you can execute it via M-x as Xah said.
