Is it just a take off put on or are there any special settings-is the camshaft sensor the same to replace?

Crank sensor is behind the crank pulley. The timing belt has to be removed to get to it.

Why are replacing both sensors?

Thanks for replying-I just decided not to replace the crank sensor-I had no idea the timming belt needed to come off thats very labor intensive-I trhought I would be proactive and replace the sensors since they are realitively cheap-avoid problems in the future-I was told if the crank sensor goes out then the care just cranks and doesn't fire is that true?

Yes, but is not a common failure. I would keep them in case of a future failure, if it ever occurs.
