It is a bit odd to get the same low compression in 2 cylinders so far apart. Are you sure you are measuring the compression at those 1 and 4 cylinders properly. Confirm you are following the right procedure for measuring the compression. If you have got the right readings then you likely have a head problem because rings tend not to go bad like that at the same time. Could be a warped head or valve issues. You might be noticing pressure related issues in the crankcase or poor running due to the pressure bypassing the exhaust.

Probably. Assuming the check engine light is not on, if you changed the IAC it could take driving the car for the computer to get the valve in the right spot.

If you feel that you've hit the hole that hard, you should have the wheel and suspension checked by a professional. The strut or control arm may be bent and in need of replacement, but that's only if you've really hammered it.

You should be able to get a replacement either at a car parts store or an on-line supplier. It is probably not very hard to change - unlatch the electrical connector and unplug, then remove the clamping screws and pull the old injector out. Be sure to check for an O-ring in the seat; you don't want to try to put in two o-rings (not all designs use one).
I assume you know the injector is bad because you have observed uneven or erratic spray from it, or you know the solenoid coil is defective.
