Is there a way to get a
to expand its menus when clicking instead of when hovering the mouse over the menu?

So you want to expand/collapse the submenus on mouse movements.
You can get the result by subclassing
and adding a mouse listener to detect the mouse entered and mouse exited events. Check out JMenu#fireMenuXXX methods.
Warning:Take this with a grain of salt. I haven't tried it myself.
