You'll need an image editing program, like Photoshop, or the GIMP. You'll also need VTFEdit.

For every frame of your spray, you will need a separate tga file. I'm not going to go into detail about editing your gif into seperate frames, that one is on you. At 128x128, you can have up to seven frames. Name your spray images something like:

spray001.tga
spray002.tga
...
spray007.tga

Open up VTFEdit. Go to File > Import. Ctrl+click each .tga file, and import the whole bunch. In the dialog that pops up, deselect 'Generate MipMaps' but leave all else at the defaults.
You should now see your spray off to the side. Go to File > Save, and save yourspray.vtf into:

...\Team Fortress 2\tf\materials\vgui\logos

Start up TF2 and import yourspray.vtf via the in-game spray importer.

There are some decent online GIF editors. PS doesn't do GIF well prior to CS2 or 3.
