space flight propulsion

I understand that space in a vacuum, and is extremely cold. I understand that to push something trough space such as a rocket you need to create a force. Now I’ve researched many new technologies such as ion propulsion, nuclear antimatter reactors, etc. But they all still require a fuel. I want to know if it is possible to make two magnetic fields oppose each other in a chamber then harness the heat and use that a a propulsion. Also another though is can solar rays be harnessed and produce gamma radiation and use that as a force?
