Ive used glTexSubimage2d() to put a blank square in a texture by making a 2d array filled with zeros, but how do I put 1 texture on another texture to make something such as a explosion scar? The scar wont be transparent so I hope I dont need to resort to multitexturing...

Everything you can do with multitexturing can be done with multiple passes. Multitexturing is used for better performance.

It seems to be several solutions to your problem.
1. Use a premade combination of the two textures.
2. Modify the texture at runtime
3. Render the scar as a second pass. Probably involves alpha testing and polygon offsets.

The first seems to be both the easiest and fastest way to do it.
