Sure ... if you connect the mic to a mic pre-amp and connect that to one of the line inputs (or digital inputs if the mic pre-amp has a digital output).

I have a 6.1 surround sound htr5740 Yamaha can u hook up an equalizer to it? And if so does it have to be Yamaha equalizer or can u use any brand ?

you can hook up any equalizer you prefer
In a professional setting this would go after your signal processing before your amp

A consumer receiver functions as both the signal processor and the amplifier in one. Some receivers have a "tape monitor channel", "preamp in and out or "through".

upload a pic of the back of your receiver

I believe your amp has no tape out or any type of feature that would allow an insert. Upload a pic though to be sure.

If that is that case you would have to put it before the inputs, which unless you only have one, would be complicated.

I have TX-SR503 onkyo receiver. I want to connect a microphone to it so that I can do a karaoke. The unit does not have a socket for microphone. It has a socket for phones. This socket does not appear...

The reason that jack doesn't work for a microphone is because it's a headphone jack. It's meant to send a signal out to headphones, and it doesn't work as an input. If the receiver doesn't have a microphone input jack (and it would be clearly labeled as such), you'll need to connect your mike through the auxiliary input. You may be able to connect with nothing more than an adapter to switch from the plug on the end of the mike cable to the RCA jacks on your receiver. The output level on some mikes may be high enough to drive the auxiliary input as-is. More likely, though, the mike will need a little boost to make it work with the receiver. The receiver needs a "line-level" input, which is higher than the output of most good-quality mikes. To get the mike up to line level you'll need a microphone preamp. There are many types from many sources, at a wide range of prices. Here's one I have used as an example.

You might also want to look for a small mixer like this. The mixer would let you combine your mike and music source into a single line-level output you could run to the receiver, and use the receiver just for the amplifier function.

Can I connect my wireless microphne receiver to a multi chanel receiver?

You would typically need a mixer between a wireless microphone receiver and a home hi-fi receiver. The Shure SCM262 will work well.
