The Twenty‐Fifth Amendment establishes procedures by which the vice president becomes "Acting President" in the event of disability and the president may resume the powers of the office on the termination of the disability: by the president's written declaration or the vice president's together with a majority of top executive officials.

Does the president ever appoints the vice to take charge if he is still in the same room?

I am not sure what you want to know. The President can not and does not informally transfer his powers to the vice-president or anybody else. If the President is disabled and unable to perform his duties, he must transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. At that point, the vice-president takes over the President's duties. (I suppose the vice-president could be visiting the president in , say a hospital room, when the president tells him that he has sent such letters.)

What happens if the President dies or is disabled?

If the President dies (or is permanently incapacitated), the Vice President succeeds to the Presidency for the remainder of the President's term. If there is sufficient time involved, a new Vice President will be nominated to serve the Vice President's term. If the President is alive but temporarily incapacitated, there is a complicated procedure for allowing the Vice President to act as Acting President temporarily, as spelled out in the 25th Amendment to the US Constitution. The amendment considers the cases where the President voluntarily yields his powers or when he does not, as well as the process of returning the powers to the President if he recovers.
