If it was me I think I would rectangle select the area I wanted to
make into a 'reflection', copy it, and paste it into the image as a
new layer. Then I would do Layer > Transform > Flip vertically.
There's a 'reflection', that can be moved up or down and scaled on
its vertical axis (if desired) to fit where you want it in the
image. If transparency is wanted, add a layer mask to the
reflection layer and fill it with a white-to-black vertical
gradient; note that you can go outside the layer with the gradient
to get partial fading as needed.
Not "one click" fast but not at all time consuming, and you get the
exact reflection you want, with GIMP-quality scaling and etc. in the
finished product. Plus you can edit your saved XCF file if you need
to adjust the reflection effect later on.
