The Gluones qualities are similler to the photones by the fact that both of them have a state mass of zero and dual wave-particle behavior..

My question is what the range of the wavelengthes of the Gluons in the nucleons and in another barions?

Gluons don't exist as free particles, so they do not form waves in the same way electromagnetic radiation can do.
For a gluon with a specific energy E, you can still assign a wavelength via $\lambda=\frac{hc}{E}$, but gluons in baryons don't have a well-defined energy.
