Generally you will only want to export the clip that needs effects from your editor, then import that clip into EffectsLab and work with it. When its done, move on to the next clip. Using the project you already have going, it should be as simple as setting the in and out points ("I" and "O" respectively) to the start and end of that clip, then rendering out only the bit with the effect.
If you want to actually end the clip abruptly, it will depend somewhat on what type of effect it is; you mention an explosion, did you use a particle explosion or stock footage?

I used the explosion from the program. I have had this program for a while now but i'm just getting the hang of it. Basically what I need is if I use an effect how to i change how long you see the effect stopping it if it still has a while to end.

Use the crop tool, and drag the end of the effect to the frame where you want it to stop.

Is it possible for you to make a youtube tutorial?
Or take a snapshot of the crop tool ? I'm not sure
which one it is. I'm really sorry.

It looks like two arrows pointing in opposite directions, and is explained thoroughly both in the chapter of the manual on the Timeline, as well as the Timeline > Timeline tools
section of the video tutorials.
