1993 toyota tercel 1 cylinder has low compression

There is no quick fix on low compression.
Less hope for a stick valve.
Do an oil change with 30 weight oil.
Ran it for few minutes and hope it's just a stuck valve.

1993 TOYOTA TERCEL 1500cc Valve Seals Replaced now smokes much worse

You either have had the wrong valve seals installed, they are physically missing, or the valves are incorrect (too loose in the guides/stem too thin). The rocker arm seals will not contribute to your issue. If it did not have the oil smoke before you took the head off, the issue is with whatever the machine shop did. Valve seals have to fit TIGHT, or oil will go down the valve stem into the intake.
Take the head back to the machine shop & tell them to fix it. For free.
