I have to compose a HD 1920 x 1080 video where two videos appear side by side (split-screen). I have recorded both videos so the relevant things would show on either half after composing. How can that be done with Photoshop's basic video editing tools?

Apply a layer mask to the visdeo layer.

As per @Mylenium ’s advice a Layer Mask should suffice. 

If you need further information please post a screenshot with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible.

You now have two videos running at the same time with the upper video hiding the lower video

In the layers panel you will have a group for each video group in the timeline

Select the upper group and give it a layer mask (my green highlight)

Fill whatever part of video group 2 you want to hide with black.

Job done

BTW  The clip on the right is the tree I had just parked my drone in, moments after the video on the left. 😞
