Because it's a physical simulation, that will be hard. What you will 
want to do for things like gates or jumps, is to apply forces to make 
the body move in the direction you want it.

For a jump, you can apply a single, large impulse in the up direction. 
dBodyAddForce(body, 0, 10000, 0);
The actual value of the force depends on mass, time step size, and how 
high you want to jump.
