man sysctl
man sysctl.conf
man sysctl.d

and then read files /etc/sysctl.conf and files under /etc/sysctl.d/.
Those should give you enough examples. For your example, line you need
to add to some of those files, or even better new file under sysctl.d
with descriptive name for what will be done in it:

net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
