You can find a list of console commands here. However, editing commands in the console is not saved, so you have to edit it every time, when you launch the game. You can create a file named autoexec.cfg in ...\Steam\steamapps\common\dota 2 beta\game\dota\cfg and add some commands there. They will then be executed every time you start the game.
