I am messing around with the "CC Smear" Effect. And I made a path for the "From" Point and I want the "To" point's path to be the same but I still want to be able to move the point using keyframes while still having it be tracked to the track I made.

Apply the track to a Null, reference the Null with a pickwhip expression in the effects controls, animate the point control on top of the existing keyframes using something as simple as

 

refNull=thisComp.layer("XYZ").transform.position;

X=value[0]+refNull[0];
Y=value[1]+refNull[1];

[X,Y]
