Select the object you want to apply a gradient to. Go to the
panel and click on the Fill category (defaults to solid),
Gradient fly out select the gradient you want.
You can then click on the color picker and tweek the gradient
your hearts content.
You will also see some drag handles appear on the object that
to manipulate how the gradient applies to the object.

I'm a relative newbie as well and this always used to get me.
If the button in the panel has a tiny black arrow at the bottom of
it, that means the button has other options attached to it. To get
to the other options, click the button and drag slightly downward.
This should pop up a list. If you click the paint bucket and drag
slightly, one of the options that pops up is the gradient tool.
Select it, and the gradient panel should appear at the bottom of
the screen. If you merely click the paint bucket button, you will
get the paint bucket tool (which won't help you.)
