Welcome to the forum.

Please use a title that indicates the subject of your thread, rather than a meaningless one.

You need to put the background into V2 track. You can create a new track with the timeline menu > tracks. Select either video or multi,

Hey, if this won't work, because you have no idea about effects, I have an answer.
It's better to travel well than to arrive...

That description isn't very helpful to understand your problem. If you mean that you want to replace a black section of your timeline with a new image, you simply edit the new image into the timeline. If you mean that you want to replace the black sections of an image already in your timeline with another image, then do as briandrys suggests, and add a lumakey effect to remove the black.

If the lumakey isn't clean enough you could try either Easy overlay or Key out black. Both effects are similar in result: the first is better with subtle transparency issues, the latter is simpler to use but will cut the black harder.

If you haven't used custom effects before you will find installation instructions in CUSTOM EFFECTS INSTALLATION
