Yeah, that's totally possible with VisionLab. Looking at the link you gave, it appears that they used a combination of greenscreen and split-screen techniques. I'd guess they set up a greenscreen behind the two people involved in the pushing, but they set it up right there, with the camera locked off.

As far as the time freeze part of it, you just cut the video and import a still image of the next frame, which you can stretch to any duration you want. By using the greenscreen, you can have the person in the background run around all he wants while they are frozen in the foreground.
