Can I replace a compact ( 94mm bolt pattern ) with a standard ( 110 ) crankset?

What is required besides cranks/ bb?

Yep.

Assuming you'll be going to a larger big ring, your present front derailer won't be optimal, but
still might be acceptable if the difference isn't too great (also depending on your skill level.)

See: the "front" section of my derailer adjustment article:

You may want to consider the shape/size of your front changer. If you're running a 44t outer now and
change to a 52 it will need a lot of clearance as the curve won't match. Within a couple of teeth
it'll be fine.
