"Asymptotic SE" is short for "asymptotic standard error", which is an estimate of the standard error that will be valid if the sample is large enough (but with no indication of how big that might be!). "CI" is short for "confidence interval", the interval within which you can be 95% sure that the parameter lies. (Note that 95% is the default value, and can be changed.) For more on these, see a statistics text.
