Hi there. What you're refering to is levels rather than layers. Layers are what's in your timeline and these cannnot be switched at run time, however you can assign various components such as movieclips, buttons etc to various levels and using code you can arrange them according to your own needs.

on (rollOver) {
this.swapDepths(100);
}

the above code is a very simple example, that when the mouse rolls over the movieclip where the code is attached, the movieclip will be sent to level100.

instead of specifying the level, you can also refer to another movieclip, then those 2 movieclips will swap their respective levels.
