    All the entry level Video editors will let you do this. You haven't said if you're Windows or Mac but both have programs included - Windows has Windows Movie Maker and Macs have iMovie.
    More flexibility will come from the $100 packages free trials of Adobe Premiere Elements and Sony Vegas Movie Studio (and no doubt others) are available for download.
    Don't expect instant results though. You get out of these things what you put in.

    I would get premiere elements or vegas studio.. It'll do whjat you want and later you can upgrade to the full bersions for a discount.. Look at the trials first to see what you like better before you buy.. And like Tim said it'll take practice.. and the more you use it and the more effort you give the better it'll be.. good luck
