That is compositing. What you do is create a mask where the
person is walking in front of the text (this will be an animated
mask since the person is moving). Then you have three tracks.
One for the moving footage on the background, one for the
text (in the middle) and then the moving footage again in the
forground which only shows the footage through your mask.

That is usually the most difficult and time consuming indeed.
I can't explain you how to animate a mask. It has to do with
keyframing etc. Check the manual on that.
