Note coreboot, not corebios. coreboot isn't a BIOS. SeaBIOS can be
used with coreboot to get a BIOS.

You can do some things also without VSA. VSA is used to create
virtual PCI devices for among other things sound and graphics.
However, a native graphics driver such as the one in libpayload or
xf86-video-geode may not need VSA to drive the graphics hardware.

CS553x connects to either IDE or NAND and provides an IDE style
programming interface to the software.
