Have you considered trying an 'alamdv2 plugin'? There are some good variations of fireballs there. If you find one you like, just import it, scale it, and animate it on screen where you want it to travel to and from.
Also, using the particle engine, just move the emmitter to and from. Might have to turn it on and off at certain locations. You can just use a 'preset' and conform it to what you want. Check the particle engine tuts for more info.
Hope this helps.

First day with program. Bad in English.
So no.. Can you record it..?
Show me how I put the ball over my hand, and not just drag the fire, so It comes a long firestripe..

So you want to learn how to do the animation?
Check out the video tutorials: http://fxhome.com/support/video-tutorials#s6
If you need any fireballs or energyballs, like they said above, use one from alamdv2 or there is even some on the FxPresets archive. Try searching for "fire ball".
There are some good choices. I love them all but for what you need I think either Oeyvind's
would be the best choice.

Oh yeah. I forgot about those two presets. That's probally what he's looking for.
And thanks for the reminder.
