Hue layer

Hue layer

I am trying to recolor a texture for a game model, but I have the following problem:

This is the image:

Now, as you can see there is a yellow-ish pastel rectangle(not pure rectangle due to the color gradient. I don't know how this effect has been achieved by the creator of the texture, but I want to recolor this part of the image without affecting the gradient and by keeping the same "smudged pastel" effect on the new color.

I tried to make a new layer and bucket fill it the desired color, then make it Hue, and while it retains the gradient perfectly and works flawlessly just on the yellow part, the lower yellow color affects the top layer. You can see exactly(if still unclear) which part I want to recolor here:

How can I make it so I only keep the lower layer gradient in color and pastel effect, but have no color to affect the top layer, so that I can recolor it in any color I want?
I assume this is a super easy thing for someone who has an idea how to work with GIMP, unfortunately not for me.

Thank you in advance!
