    Crack from skimmer

    Repairing crack in pool side will from skimmer down about 5 feet. Do I need to inlay support like rebar or Torque-bar, or will an epoxy fill suffice?

    I'd reinforce it with rebar. it will still move and the epoxy will not be able to stop that.

    I wonder if anyone has tried to put post tensioning cables in a pool shell?

    That would be... Difficult. The only parts you could really post-tension are the bond beam in a rectangular pool and no parts of a free-form. You can only put tension on a straight cable, If the cable path is curved it would rip the shell apart.
