It sounds like you are describing green screen replacement as seen on the weather reports or special scenes in movies. This video explains the process, called Chroma Key, well.

iMovie 09 has the ability, as well as Final Cut which is a bit expensive. iMovie versions before 09 do not have this feature.

In YouTube, enter the following text in the search box for several tutorials;
imovie 09 green screen

CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
