Loss of compression in #5 cylinder on my 1990 nissan maxima

I would first be sure that you have spark to that cyllinder. Pull the wire off and stick an extra spark plug in the wire. Lay it on the engine block somewhere and atart the car to see if it's sparking. If it is, you have a valve or cam problem. If it isn't check the plug, the wire, distributer, coil pack etc.

Nissan Maxima 1990 GXE has problems: The motor vibrates and does not steady. Therefore, when removing the cables of the distributor from the spark plugs one by one, the motor much vibrates except one plug,...

It is possible that the two spark plugs could have become fuel fouled and not respond. A quick way to tell is to remove the suspected spark plugs and switch them with known good spark plugs in the engine and see if the problem follows the spark plugs. If the problem doesn't more from those cylinders then you may need to investigate the injectors (even though they are new) as being on the shelf a long time and operating incorrectly. Not opening enough and doesn't make the cylinder operate therefore cause fuel to enter the exhaust.

Can't start 1990 nissan maxima. it's like it's not getting gas although I can smell gas

Thats because your engine is flushed with gas and not enough air from cranking the engine so much. If you smell gas, then the car is getting gas. Gas is not your problem. It might be your starter or check your ignition system such as spark plug, etc.....
