I wonder if such insulating glue can be used on a glue gun.

No these conformal coatings are normally applied as a liquid or a spray and can be quite expensive. They have the property that you can "solder through" them to affect a repair.

I use hot melt glue a lot to stop things shorting out. But as KE7GKP pointed out first make a solid mechanical joint, then solder it finally insulate it.

Again it might be useful to know what kind of wire you are using? Uninsulated wire is pretty hard to come across by accident. Bus wire is the only example that comes to mind that is truly uninsulated.
