Is there a way to create a ring of fire around an actor?
not just a ring rising from the floor
but the ring being created from the start all around the actor

Sure, but you'll need to create a mask in another app and "cut out" the actor, or use a blocker to make the flames appear to go behind them.

Depending on the visual depth, you'll need a few copies of the flame emitter. The one in front needs to be zoomed larger, the one in back is zoomed smaller, and the sides are somewhere in between.
