Garbage matte and cropping in VSE.

Is it possible to crop and garbage matte similarly like how it can be done in adobe premiere? I wanna try doing the whole “cloning” scene, where i take two footage of the same person, one where he is standing on the left the other on the right and then put them both together, cropping/masking one of them, making it seem like they are in the scene at the same time.
