I am looking to create a group policy that changes the permission of a registry key on all computers in the domain.

Is this possible and if so how do i do it?

Yes you can use a GPO for this, see
Apply or modify permission entries for objects using Group Policy
Take a look at the screenshot from my lab, that is how you do it.
As with any group policy always test first :)
