Theres no spark from the coil. okay, what year and make and model is this car and last what size engine, you may have a bad coil but hard to say without knowing the car, this may be due to a bad coil or crank sensor and last broken timing belt all depending on the make.

My 1994 cavalier lost spark to cylinders 1 and 4. Which components are directly related to ignition spark and timing? What about the camshaft sensor?

You listed all the components involved in spark timing and control- coil, ignition module, pcm, wires, plugs, crank sensor, and cam sensor.
Cylinders 1 and 4 have the same coil for both, so concentrate on that coil. You still have a good blue spark on cylinders 2 and 3? If you have spark there, I don't know about the cam sensor-I think it would be good if it works at all. You need to check if you have 12 volts power to the coil for 1 and 4.

Changed coil but still wont fire

Yes, maybe the igniter (or ignition control module as it's called on American cars). And no, it would not be sold with the coil. It would have to be a separate purchase. Look around on the firewall, especially on the driver's side, a small black (I think) rectangular piece, a little bigger than a matchbook, with an electrical connector. I just totaled my '87 Celica so I can't go look and check the size and location for you-lol.
Before buying, check for power to the coil on the primary (+) side of the coil, when key is turned to on. If you have battery power there try a new igniter.

What are the coil packs, is it the plugs?

No, entirely different, although both coils and spark plugs have been around since the beginning of time....well, modern time, or as we might say in montana, horseless carriage time, lol.
A spark plug is a spark plug. Todays are better engineered and designed than the very first working spark plugs, but they look and work just alike. A coil pack (think of a rack with 2, 3 or 4 individual coils attached) is a modern day version of the same coil that has been a fixture on automobiles since the beginning of ( mass production). Same function, same design-only packaged different to accomodate todays distributorless ignition systems, where electronics have taken over many previous mechanical operations, like the distributor, for one. Manufacturers just built bigger and more complex systems around the coil and the spark plugs, or that what makes the internal combustion engine work, you know.
The function of the coil or of the coil pack is to dramatically increase the voltage to the spark plug. Think of it, only 12 volts from the car's 12 volt system enters the coil, but exiting the coil and going to the spark plug is a voltage measured in the thousands, 40 to 60 thousand volts in modern systems, and before electronic ignition when cars used mechanical "points" to make and break electrical contact so the coil would do it's job, the coil output was something around 10,000 volts, still a shocking upgrade as I recall.
Now why is this necessary, you ask? Because the function of the spark plug is to simply provide a path for an electrical current from the coil to jump to ground by jumping a gap at the end of the plug with a spark. The bigger the voltage push, the bigger the spark.
Well, there you go, diego, hope you understand it a little better. I'm no expert, still don't know a lot about electrical theory, and car systems, but you have to learn a little when you can't afford to pay somebody else to fix it.

I have a 91 olds supreme 3.1 v6 it shut off and won't start back .... It starts but won't turn over.... And when turn the key back off it's blows the dis fuse wich mean direct ignition system...

Check the coils that have been replace for bent or broken prongs that plug into the ignition control module and if nothing looks damaged then i would think the ignition control module is faulty.Replace ignition control module.

I have a carter electric fuel pump on my boat. Its hooked up to my coil going to my distributer that is switched from my ignition. When my ignition is on and the engine is not running the pump runs...

It should be on as long the key is switched on. if you're ignition is supplied the fuel pump should be supplied if it's hooked to your coil... although, I would reccomend hooking it up to a keyed source other than your coil. it's taking a toll on you coil while it's hooked up there. gonna cause ignition issues down the line due to extra load.
your pump is doing what it should though. Good luck.

Car just stopped running. Lost power suddenly.

Find an inductive pickup indicator for spark. Place on distributor cap to see if spark is at coil internal tower. If no spark at internal tower, look at ignition module or pickup coil. Ignition modules are prone to failure on 626's. But if you have spark at tower but not at the wire end, then your rotor is gone.
