Can you destroy your own units?

If i put unit A on hold, and unit B attempts to move there with the support of unit C, what will happen? I checked on the order solver which didn't give me a result.
Note: I own all three of them

You cannot dislodge yourself. Thus, you will not get the option of disbanding the unit.

The short answer is "no" but it is plenty nuanced:

You can't,for example, attack yourself to force a retreat.
And you can't, during a non-build phase, voluntarily destroy a unit that has not been forced to retreat.
And you can't, during a build phase, destroy any unit(s) unless you are required to destroy. (So, for example,during the build phase you would not be able to disband a unit that has been shove so far from your home to be practically useless in favor of re-building one elsewhere.

But, you can voluntarily destroy a unit that is being forced to retreat. And you can negotiate with an ally (or even an enemy) to have them attack a unit with sufficient strength to force said retreat.

Not being allowed to dislodge your own unit enables a practical use of a variation of this type of move. If Units B and C move as described then instead of holding Unit A can be used to cut support in another space without risk of being dislodged by a 2 vs 1 attack.

Not sure what you mean about the Orders Solver not giving you the result. I just used it and here was the output (I tried to dislodge my unit in Pic from Bel with support from Bre)

Just saw this.
From what I remember one of the arrows -> was followed by a blank space. I may have put in something very wrong at that point since I was pretty desperate for an answer.
I tried again it worked this time :)
