You can use Maya live, thats pretty easy to use and comes with tutorials on how to use it (just look in the help files) I've not had a problem tracking with it. Like Fallot said.
I cant really see an application for a green screen in this situation as your adding the maya to the background, not the other way round where you want to make a Cg backgroung look ike its actually in the shot wher you would have to matt it out.
The only time you woulld use a tracking software would be when your background plate is movine (say a road with no cars on and you pan left to right and your going to add a cg car) and you need the camera movement of the shot to go into maya so that your Cg camera matches your real camera.
If its a still shot or a video shot on a static tripod then theres no need to track it at all.
