I still don't really understand what you are trying to do. The way you've specified the problem, you are plotting Cos[x] over Pi/4 to Pi/2 and Sin[x] over 0 to Pi/4. That is you've specified a domain for one function of (0, Pi/4) and for the other (Pi/4, Pi/2). These clearly do not overlap. In fact, there is no way to get these to overlap.

The trick I used of adding Pi/4 to the argument of one function in effect changes the one domain from (0, Pi/4) to (Pi/4, Pi/2). It is as if I defined a new variable, y = x + Pi/4 and now plotted Sin[y] with y having a domain of (0, Pi/4).

Somehow the code above got garbled. I thought I pasted it, but perhaps I actually typed it with a typo.

The "]" character that comes after the range for Sin[x] should be placed after the PlotStyle->Hue[0.6] instead of where it appears. That is it should read

    {$DisplayFunction = Identity}, 
    {Plot[Cos[x], {x, Pi/4, Pi/2}, PlotStyle ->Hue[0]], 
     Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, Pi/4}, PlotStyle -> Hue[0.6]]}], 
   PlotRange -> All];
