Sort of.

You can certainly do the disappearing and reappearing.

What you would need to do is to set up your camera on a tripod so it doesn't move. First record several seconds of an empty scene (no actor). Then record the actor performing the action before the disappearance.

In Movie Maker, put the scene with the actor first, then cut it. Now put the empty scene next. It will look like the actor has disappeared suddenly.

Reverse the process to reappear. Trim the appearance and put the empty scene before it. So you'll see no actor, then suddenly he will appear.

In both cases, add some sound effects at the time of disappearance or reappearance to add realism.

Ideally there would be additional visual effects such as some smoke. That's harder to do with Movie Maker, but you might be able to composite it on in a second editing pass.
