You'll need to read the policy to see if it's covered. You can get coverage for anything but it usually needs to be spelled out specifically in the terms of the policy. Anything not specifically covered is usually NOT covered.

Does homeowners insurance cover damage to an in ground swimming pool caused by water pressure to the exterior walls of the pool?

No. This sounds like a manufacturer or maintenance issue. Something is wrong with the pool itself or with the way it was installed as the earth behind pool walls has washed away making it loose support and fail. For a homeowners policy to pay for damages the damage must be the fault of a covered cause. I can't see how the damage you are describing could be from a coverer cause. Homeowners insurance is not made to cover maintenance issues or manufacturer defects. First I would contact whoever installed the pool. If it has been past the warranty period I would check with a professional to see what the cause of the damage is first.

Will home owners insurance cover above ground swimming pool damage?

Homeowners policies are not all the same; you can include an above ground swimming pool in such a policy, but the policy will have to state that this coverage is included. Normally, a home owners policy only covers things that are inside the home, not things that are in the back yard. Read your policy, it will tell you what is covered. Or if you don't have a policy, you can get any kind of insurance you like - but everything you insure will add to the cost of your monthly premium.

Does a subdivision without common areas need liability insurance and why?

I don't see any need for liability insurance in the case you described. In cases where you have a homeowners association or a condo owners association and they own common property such as a swimming pool, parks, roofs, sidewalks, etc. then they would have a need for both property and liability insurnance to cover these areas. This is what you dues are in place to pay for as well as maintenance.
