M1(front left motor) got damaged and I replaced it with another one. The replacement is not spinning at all (i know the motor works because I tested it with a different power source). But I'm sure I did everything right when soldering it. I also realised that the camera has also stopped working. Please can anyone help me know if these two incidents are related and whether anything can be done about either of them.

No. Unless your description was too broad and inaccurate; then maybe yes.

Yes. You diagnose, then you fix.
Or you go to a repair place where they know how to do that.

Here's some basic info to get understanding how the Tello works:

Did you use a soldiering iron with a temperature controller because too much heat can damage a board. I know keeping the soldering contacts clean and separate can be tricky because I've been there. Oily or grease fingers can also short a board. New Boards are available through the internet.
