I using Realsense D435 and custom rover, and I tried navigation with it, but I didn't get the results I wanted.

I have been searching, but haven't found out how to navigation using only slam node and move_base.

So I thought of a few ways, can I solve this problem by tying the tf tree to the slam's map topic and odom in both directions? If not, Is there a better way?

Have you read those tutorials? In general, the SLAM node will give map->odom TF and the odometry node will give odom->base_link (or odom->base_footprint) TF (see rep105). base_footprint to other fixed sensors on the robots would be published by a robot_state_publisher using the URDF of the robot.
