I was wondering how to film a person walking/jumping/running through a wall...
I have not done this shot yet so I am open to all methods
I do have a green screen but I don't have the greatest lighting conditions.
I don't mind rotoscoping but I would prefer not to

Film a blank plate of the wall, then film either your character in front of greenscreen, or running into the wall, if you intend to use split-screen. Greenscreen is gonna work much better for this application. Layer the greenscreen over the wall, and when he gets to the wall, use a freehand animated mask to progressively remove the actor as he 'passes through' the wall.

How can I make it so the actor continually moves through the wall even if he stops at the wall?
I do not have a green screen/ applicable hang up process for my greenscreens

You will have to have a clean background plate of the wall, then you will have to use masks to completely isolate the actor from the scene, so everything but him is removed. Then you can animate his position so he appears to continue walking. This will require judicious camera angles, as if you can see his feet it will be obvious that he's not still walking.

Its certainly possible to make that work, yes. Of course whether it will work is in your hands. I'm sure you can make it work.
