I really have a bad time understanding my own thoughts and even a harder time explaining what goes on in my head. Tolerate me, I'm harmless..
Let me try and be more clear...
Popups became such a nuisance that smart surfers now run popup stoppers and popup blockers. Even Google and Yahoo have added free popup blocking to their toolbars.
The newest tool many entrepreneurs are now using to get around the blocking is referred to as an “unblockable” popup, because it loads in the same page the visitor is already viewing instead of a separate window.
so I thought of a nice pop up that appears in the browser with a cool, semi-transparent look. When you look at the shadow of the object, you can still see the background.
But instead of a clickable area... It actually displays an Iframe.
I have more than 1 site and if I can " overlap " my sites.. Well, it would help make my life easier.

It sounds like you're talking about a modal dialog [google.com].

|The idea here is to disable all the elements in an html document and present a dialog which must be "processed" by the user before any other actions can be taken. |
I don't want to disable or force the user to click on anything.
What I want to do is have a pop up load in the same page but with an Iframe to another of my sites.
By not having to open a new window, I don't have to worry about pop up blockers.

Add an element with JS, use CSS to give it absolute positioning so it doesn't influence the other elements on your page, and have a close button in it that removes the added element with JS
