How about using masking (layer masks) to achieve the above effect? This tutorial is not really what you want but it demonstrates how to use masks, or a this tutorial would be more appropriate.

Have you tried using the Blending Options?

Right click on the layer, select Blending Options, then Gradient Overlay. Try having a play about with that, might be what you're after...
