Two effect shots. Please HELP.

Hey guys I have two questions and I might have to do some of these effects in motion or something of that nature. I rather just do it in final cut if possible because I have no idea how to even import into motion.

1st shot

guy walks with his hand on the wall while he walks. Camera is dynamic. I want his hand to almost make ripple like effect on the wall. Like the wall is a water substance almost. I need the color to be the same

What I have done so far is layer the same shot on top. garbage most the shot out and left only the trail behind his hand. I then added the ripple effect to it. This is what Iím looking for but I donít know how to move the garbaged ripple in a way that will change with the movement of the hand. I can move the garbaged layer around but what I need is like someoneís faces is blurred out on TV. I need to move around and have the ripple change colors on location to where it is in the shot. Not just the same location moved around.

Second shot.

Guy is standing up and walk/slides to the left of screen. I want this to look like he turns into sand and is blow away by wind. I can get his body to disappear because itís a static shot and I just place the empty shot underneath and make the shot of him more transparent as he slides left. I want to know how to do this with the sand or some other particle system. Any advise here would be great.
