I know how to go into setting and enable and disable the the chat. My question, is it real-time while a meeting or webinar is going on? Meaning if I am in a webinar and chat is on can I turn it off and no one will be allowed to chat any more during that time frame. Then can it be turned back on in the same meeting at a later time.
You can certainly disable the in-meeting and in-webinar chat as you need, but once the meeting or webinar has started, changing those settings in the web portal will have no effect on the live session. The best way to control chat usage during the live session would be to use the in-meeting security controls, which would allow you to restrict chat usage on the fly: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/360041848151-In-meeting-security-options
Hope that helps and please make sure to mark the solution as accepted if this information is what you needed.
