Hello. :)
 

I dont know much of the technical part of paint.net unfortunately.

 
Do you at least know how to work with paint.net's layers, tools, and the adjustments in the adjustments tab?
If not, I suggest you get familiar with paint.net. http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/MainWindow.html
 
Now, for your image, here are some suggestions :
Duplicate the image (you don't want to do anything to the original in case of mistakes). Then try using the clone stamp tool.
Here are two old, but helpful, videos about using the Clone Stamp Tool. Video 1  Video 2
The videos might be old, but the clone stamp tool still works about the same. The main difference is the brush in the current paint.net has a soft/hardness (which is a good thing. You can make the brush's edge very soft for better blending). For older versions of paint.net, I don't know if you could get the source from another layer, but you can in the current paint.net. What I mean is, you can choose the clone stamp tool, click your source on your photo, then add a new layer, and start drawing. This feature is also mentioned in the documentation.

Here is a good video, but I don't know how much it will help you, because it is actually a video for photoshop https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifhEx4adAa8. However, the concept and methods used in the video are mostly applicable in paint.net too. The video uses layers, the clone stamp tool, the color picker/eye dropper tool, and the paintbrush tool.
And where the video talks about the pen tool/path tool, you can substitute with paint.net's line/curve tool. For the areas you want to select, make a new layer and then trace/outline those areas with the line curve tool, then once you have your areas outlined, use the magic wand tool to make your selection. Once you have a selection, add a new layer to clone stamp on/paint on. Tracing/outlining is demonstrated in these background removal tutorials : Tut1, Tut2, MiniTuts.

If the photoshop video confuses you more than helps you, since it is showing photoshop instead of paint.net, then never mind it. Just focus on becoming familiar with paint.net.


If you can't get the clone stamp tool to give you what you want, here is an alternative method : http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/19117-the-subterranean-copypaste-blues/

 

 

Also, here is a tip: Remember to save your work in the pdn format. http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/12189-how-to-save-your-images-under-different-file-types/
