I don't know about mu4e, but there are lots of sites that discuss setting up 
gnus to work with GMail, including example files,
etc. Just Google "gnus gmail" and you'll find many results.

I'm using gnus with Fastmail.fm. It was difficult to set up initially, but once 
I got it working, it's been easy to maintain,
move to new machines, etc. Also, I like the fact that I can keep finding new 
features and customizations to add.
