If you duplicate the layer and change the hue of the new layer, you can use the gradient tool set to transparency mode to make it gradually change hue

If that's not what you're after, maybe try a few different blend modes as well

Sorry, I also don't really know what you mean by, "change the hue of a picture in a gradient". In the adjustments tab you can change an image's color with either Hue/Saturation, Levels, or Curves (curves tutorial). See the paint.net documentation to know the basics of paint's adjustments: http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/AdjustmentsMenu.html
Or perhaps the gradient mapping plugin can help you? (how to install plugins?)
Here is a tutorial on gradient mapping.
If you want plugins that help to re-color an image, here are a few:
Recolor Choice
Hue/Saturation Plus
Conditional Hue/Saturation

After reading pdnnoob's reply and re-reading your question, maybe this is what you are wanting:
1) Add a new layer above your image.
2) Change the layer's blending mode to overlay, or multiply, or to whichever blending mode you want.
3) Use the Gradient tool :GradientTool: with your desired colors to draw a gradient on the new layer.


It's simple, but it will change your image's colors and can look cool depending on the colors and blending mode you use.
