Import both clips into CompositeLab. Add the background to the timeline. Then add the Greenscreen footage to the timeline. Then key out the green. That should be it.

The order of the layers on the timeline directly corresponds to the layers in the canvas. So just make sure that the background layer is below the foreground layer and you should be good. You can drag the layers around at any time to rearrange their order.
