Can somebody tell me the differences between a sale associate and a sale specialist ? It seems that the managers themselves have no clues.

Specialty Sales include Millwork, Kitchen & Bath, Pro Sales. They are called that because they deal with special order merchandise and vendors. Sales associate applies to every other sales position on the floor.

I know a sale specialist has a quota. Can a sale associate go on a special order merchandise , or this kind of sale (special order or installation) are only allowed to the sale specialist ?

Well a sales associate is specifically supposed to help customers on the sales floor. It is probably (depending on the supervisor / situation) better procedure for a sale associate to direct a customer who is interested in a special order or installation to either the Special Services Desk or Pro Desk. In this case, the associate is not taken away from his much needed spot on the sales floor. Remember, one of the biggest complaints about a Home Depot store is lack of help in the aisle.
