If I want to make some cool photos with long exposure times but not having a good camera that allows me to define the time, can I get the same result recording a video and make the superposition of its several frames in my computer?

Video has a much MUCH lower resolution than photos. You can however do photo stacking and use a device called an intervalometer (assuming your camera has a remote port).
