Hi,
I haven't come across an "automated centering" or "auto-position control" effect for a selected object in a clip.

The Crop/Zoom/Pan tool may make it easier but has some limitations, Motion Tracking might have a place for object tracking and masking - but I suspect to get an acceptable result, using the example you provided, you may have to manually keyframe Position, Scale and Rotation to keep the "object" accurately positioned.

The required accuracy of positioning will probably determine how much keyframing effort is required.

Someone else may have other suggestions.

Cheers

You sure don’t make it easy for users to provide the solution to the unwanted unstable movements of the toddler by combining the text with the toddler in the produced green screen. Ideally that camera recording should have been on a tripod instead of being hand held.

Needed these steps to produce a stable moving toddler to be able to be held in the hands of a young woman while steadily skating. See the attached screenshot recording for details.
  1. The original QUESTION.mp4 is placed on the timeline on the far left. Tools/Crop/Zoom Pan Tool is used to enlarge and recenter the toddler to eliminate that added text. PiP Designer/Chroma Key is used to remove the green screen background. Produce the clip1.
  2. That Produced clip is placed to the right and back on the timeline. Fix/ Enhance/Video Stabilizer is used at default settings to eliminate the unwanted up/down and left/right movements. Only the toddler's natural movements remain. Produced the clip2.
  3. The sample Skateboard01.mp4 video clip is placed on track 1. The Produced clip2 is placed on track2 below the sample video clip. Use PiP Designer/Chroma key on clip2 to remove the black background around the toddler and to resize the toddler to be smaller than the woman so she can hold him while skating steadily. This final clip3 can be produced now.

had tried this earlier today but did not have the time to post it before the PDM responded. You can also do it other ways like the PDM suggestion with motion tracking and keyframing if desired. Let us know how well you were able to accomplish this. I am using PD365.
