Hi Cristian, My suggestion is to get your vehicle checked and diagnosed because water can do internal damage to different vehicle components including but not limited to the transmission and/or engine. It's best to avoid puddles when ever possible because they can turn out to be deeper than they first appear to be. Good Luck.

If the car was just smoking for a few minutes after going through the puddle, then it is probably just from the water burning off. If is continuing to smoke, then you should take the car to a repair shop to get looked at. Water might have gotten in when water should not be.

While it's possible that it got into your crank case. It could just be drying off from the heat of the engine. If it persists, see a mechanic.

Typically going through a small puddle won't cause internal damage you were likely seeing stream from your hot exaust system.

Are you sure the "smoke" wasn't steam from water evaporation? Water under the car should not cause smoking it may cause your brakes to not work until they are dried out.
