What kind of sexually transmitted diseases can be transmitted from an infected father to his son?

In brief: None directly

The contribution of the male in pregnancy is limited to a single healthy sperm.
No infection is carried by that sperm. If the father brings the STD to mom and she develops a primary infection, dad could give it to the kid through the mother. Syphilis and Herpes are examples that come to mind.
