Is it possible to apply an effect just in one part of a clip: I have a video of someone touching a wall, and when he touches it I would like to create a "circular wavec effect" ONLY on one part of the wall. is it possible?

Yeah it is.
If the effect your talking about is how I can imagine it then you'll need to have a mask applied so that the wave filter will only effect the selected part you want. Make sure the mask is heavily feathered though so you don't see the waves showing the edges up.

Many thanks for your answer: I am a new user... so it is not so easy to use...
So how should I proceed:
1- I select the video I want to use
2- I aplly the waves effect (which will be applied to the all clip)
But where/ when should I apply the mask? in the clip part or in the effect part?

On the effect part.
2. grade object/waves/mask.

I would add a grade object, apply the waves to it, then add a mask to it as well, to limit the waves to the wall.

So to clarify, you'd have two things on the timeline:
Layer 2: Grade object, containing wave filter & a mask
Layer 1: Original footage
