Hi everyone! I just recently watched music video Will Smith's Miami. And I have a question: how to make 'the movement in space' effect like this?

It is best practice to post the clip you're referring to and indicate the time around which the effect you need advice for happens.
I think you are referring to the transitions from one space to another (night hotel to day beach side for example, or car to speed boat). There is a lot of planning and a few production tricks involved. Morphing is used to create a seamless transition.
If you can be more specific in your inquiry then you can get better advice.

Exactly, I try to make this effect. I didn't know how to call it. Is any way to do something like that?

Yes, but it takes a lot of careful planning in production. You need to match framing, light, actor movement as much as possible when shooting the 2 scenes you want to transition between. The rest is Morphing.
Here's an older post where I describe a simple morph in AE:
