It is very easy to rotate a text block. I use the technique for spine text 
as described in my e-book. You right click on the text block, choose 
"Properties" and one of the properties is Rotation. 

The techique for filling text with an image is described on page 362 of 
"Scribus The Official Manual".  A gradient is an image. The technique is also 
described online somewhere but it is a lot easier looking it up in the 
book. Those of us writing books should not be shy about investing in one. 
Without the manual, and/or a very careful study of the Wiki, you (and I) 
are flying blindfolded through the Alps.
