Blending modes are a function of layers in Photoshop Elements. They are not a function of video tracks in Premiere Elemetns.

Welcome to the forum.
Besides the Layer Blending Modes in PSE (as Steve mentioned), those are also available in Photoshop, plus have been added to Premiere Pro, as of about CS 4, and expanded in CS 5.5. Premiere Pro does not have quite the same array, as Photoshop (I do not know about the possibilities in PSE), but it still offers quite a few.
Apparently Adobe Premiere Elements 10 doesn't have Blending Modes capability.
Thanks guys for setting me straight on this issue. Now I won't waste any more time trying to find out "how to do it" with this new app.
PrE has not gotten them yet. PrPro just got them, at about CS 4.
They can be very useful, though they are very involved. Entire books have been written about Blending Modes in Photoshop.
Good luck, and happy editing,
