How can I superimpose one photo onto another, so both can be seen, in Elements 14? Thanks!

Can you be more explicit about what you want to do. Are you looking to have two photos side by side so that both can be seen equally? Or one photo inset into another so that one appears on top of another? Or perhaps one photo showing through another like a transparent ghost?
Open the picture that you wish to select an object from to add to another picture. Let's call it A.
Use one of the selection tools, e.g. lasso tool, selection brush, to select the object. You should see an outline surrounding it when the selection is complete
Go to Edit>copy to place it on the clipboard
Open the other picture (B)
Go to Edit>paste
In the Layers palette B will be the Background layer and A will show up above B
Activate the Move tool to position A on B, and to resize if necessary with the corner handles
Do the math and determine how much H & W you will require for the 2 pics
Go to File>new>blank file. Enter H & W, resolution 240px/in
Go to File>place and point to pic A. Do the same for pic B.
Position the pics to fill the canvas.
