I see schedule compression is more of a technique than a methodology but I understand the change in the PMBOK. The major thing to notes is the difference between crashing and fast tracking and knowing when to use them. Can you think of an example where you would use crashing vs fast tracking?
No matter how well a project is planned, actual durations of tasks can take longer than planned (PM Vydia, N.d). Schedule Compression techniques are used to shorten the project schedule duration without reducing the project scope, in order to meet the project deadline (Usmani,2021).
Projects are often delayed and there are various reasons for that (Herroelen, Willy, 2005). In such cases it’s need to compress the project schedule duration in order to bring the project back on track (Herroelen, Willy, 2005). Fast tracking and Crashing are techniques used to compress project schedule (Herroelen, Willy, 2005).
Fast Tracking does not involve costs, but may result in risks and rework (Herroelen, Willy). In Crashing, additional resources are used to do things faster, thereby reducing duration. Although, crashing does not result in too much risks, but it involves cost (PM Vydia, N.d).
Fast Tracking: Activities or phases normally done in a sequence, are done in parallel, for at least a portion of their duration (Usmani,2021). In this method, the Critical path is first reviewed (PM Vydia, N.d). Also, all the activities that can be performed by overlapping are identified making sure any of these are compromising the Project Scope (PM Vydia, N.d).
Crashing: This technique is used to shorten the schedule duration for the least incremental cost by adding resources (PM Vydia, N.d). To do Crashing the Critical path is analyzed in order to Identify all the activities that can be completed early with the help of extra resources (PM Vydia, N.d). It is important to identify the activities that provides the highest compression at the least possible cost (Herroelen, Willy, 2005).

You have mentioned some good points. In the following, I will share the content that I find useful with the class. Algorithm for reducing project duration or project critical path compression:
Path: An interconnected set of activities, the first of which does not require a prerequisite and the last does not require a posterior.Critical Path: The path whose last activity is equal to the project completion date.Compression: Reduces the time required to run
Candidate activity for compression: Activities that have the following conditions:Technically capable of compression.Their compression has the least negative consequences (such as: cost, etc.) and the most positive consequences (such as: profit, etc.).Compressing them will cause at least one critical path to be compressed.
Project critical path compression algorithm
For this purpose, the following steps are performed in order:Identify project network routesIdentify critical project pathsIdentify candidate activitiesSelect a set of candidate activities whose compression will simultaneously compress all critical paths.Compression of selected activities in the previous step, until either a new critical path is created or sufficient compression is performed.
