Say I have a bar graph with two groups, and 4 bars in each group:
bar(rand(2,4))
I would ike to plot a boxplot (or else a bunch of points) in the second bar of each group (the second bar and the boxplot have to be centered in the x axis). Is it possible? I have found no clue.
Thanks in advance.

Use hold on to place multiple plots on the same axes. Always pair it with hold off when you are complete.
If you want to add points, that sounds like a job for scatter, not boxplot.
You will need to tweak your solution to work with the specific approach you take. Here's some code to perhaps get you started.
b = bar(rand(2,4));
hold on
x = ones(10,2).*b(2).XEndPoints;
boxchart(x(:),rand(20,1),"BoxWidth",0.15)
hold off
