Crevasse rescue is a complicated skill that is far too important to leave to a few questions on stack exchange.

comment Roping together on an icy path?
I agree with you, trekking poles won't work for self arrest (BD does make a whippet trekking pole but that's just weird). However, one or two trekking poles can help you keep your balance and prevent a fall from happening. I think it all depends on the terrain you are traveling on, different tools for different places.
