Unfortunately not, unless you use other software to create the moving head with transparent background and then import it into Camtasia to combine and cut together with other footage.

If you record yourself in front of a Green Screen or solid colored background.

Then use remove a color to remove that back ground. Yes. Recording yourself with a high quality camera is best.Webcams will work, but cheap ones with no control over color settings, white balance etc. Won't do a good job.
The color removal tool is what it is. You can get pretty good results with proper lighting. Don't expect flawless results.
