Ansible and set commands

new to ansible - that being said I wanted to ask has anyone used example playbooks in ansible-galaxy to do config changes to 20 or 100 + plus devices?  In the past, I have used a custom python script that works well it allows me to manually add the command and the device list and let it run but it's not as pretty as using ansible.


I'm looking at using the fw_op_loop.yml or just fw_op.yml to apply commands set deviceconfig setting ssl-decrypt url-proxy yes & 

set system setting ctd hold-client-request yes, not sure if I am looking the correct playbook for this task requires a different playbook and if the pre-made panos modules in ansible support what I want to do.
