Just use the Unit - Change Owner and a timer..

Use Channel ability as your based ability with the Targets Allowed - Ground,Air,Friend

Event - Unit Starts the effect of an ability

Condition - Ability being cast equal to (Possession (your ability))


Set Unit X - Casting Unit
Set Unit Y - Target Unit of ability being cast
Unit - Change owner of Unit Y to the owner of Unit X
Remove Unit X from the game (this is optional, if you want the caster to be gone like banshee's possession)

You can use this in any means of owning a unit like banshee's possession ability.
