directly, you can't.
But there are some workaround to achieve this.

The easiest one:
- Create your animation and export it as PNG with transparency (1 image/frame)
- Compose your movie scene and the PNG files in a non-linear video editor

Another one:
- Extract each frame of the video and import them in Synfig (as .lst)
- Extract the sound track too if you want
- Do your animation in Synfig
You will need a non-linear video editor to mix video + sound at the end anyway.

Have fun ^^
Always check Wiki/FAQ first! - Use last builds only: Stable 1.2.1 / Dev 1.3.6 (highly recommended)
Official Synfig Training Course - Buttons too big in Linux? - No icons with appimage ? - Google Translate may help
