This is a very general question, but I'll give it an attempt. Glucose is oxidized via glycolysis to produce reduced coenzymes (2 NADH) and ATP. The product of glycolysis (pyruvate) then enters the citric acid cycle and is further oxidized to produce more reduced coenzymes (3 NADH and 1FADH2) and GTP (a high energy phosphate equivalent to ATP). The reduced coenzymes (NADH, FADH2) enter the electron transport chain and then are oxidized to release electrons. The electrons traverse the electron transport chain via several electron transport molecules and ultimately reduce oxygen to form metabolic water.

Can cellular respiration or fermentation can be used to release energy depending on the presence of carbohydrates?

yes if glucose is present with oxygen it (glucose) will be broken down to release large amounts of energy. if glucose is present but oxygen is not, then it (glucose) will only be partially broken down therefore energy will be released but only in small amounts.
