Recently I was creating a module to install basic things for other modules dependent of it. I have to make a web.config change manually in order to all modules work and I was wondering if there is any way to automate it in the module instalation proccess.

Mario,
a number of modules, including ActiveForums and YAF.Net for DNN are registering HTML modules and other components in web.config using xms merge, I suggest reviewing the source code and manifests.
However, you shouldn't use web.config to store individual Settings, the database would be a better place for this.
