Get a Haynes manual for your vehicle. It will show just about anything you can fix on your car. It will have wiring and fuse diagrams. Fuses can be located under the hood, under the dash, on the drivers dash near the door.

They have tehm online or at most auto stores.

Fan fuse blown?

I assume you have replaced the blower fuse before.
The compressor has probably failed and that is what is blowing the fuse. You may be able to unplug the clutch on the compressor and use the heat without blowing the fuse again.
Otherwise someone will have to trace the circuit with the blown fuse to find out what it powers.

My 1997 Mazda Protege heater does not blow air, i replaced and tested blower motor, resistor and fuses inside the cab. Still nothing

Before replacing the blower motor, you should have checked the motor's input wiring loom for power.
Do you have power here?

If you don't have power, then you need to check your blower switch output wires.

The heat in my 96 mazda protege dosn't work

With the ignition and fan switches turned on check for power at fan motor.If you have power at the motor then wiggle and maybe pull on the blower motor resistor and if fan comes on just fix the connection.But when you check for power at the blower motor and don't have power then check the fan relay if it does'nt click when you turn it on then its faulty.
