set-register isn't an interactive function, i.e. you can't call
it via M-x or through a keybinding.  The Emacs manual describes
how to use registers in far more detail than I ever could, see
the Info node "(emacs)Registers", you can get there by evaluating
(Info-goto-node "(emacs)Registers") in Emacs.
