A customer wants to set the Contracted Power and the Design Limit on racks automatically from ServiceNow.
Do we (the Rest API) allow to SET these values?

In general there is only REST APIs to update things you can update from the web client.
Looking at the documentation (https://dcimsupport.apc.com/DCOAPIdoc) for what can be updated by the PATCH /asset operation (https://dcimsupport.apc.com/DCOAPIdoc/services/AssetVO.html) it looks like the Design Limit could be represented by the designPowerLimit property. That property is read-only in the API and can not be updated.
I am not sure which property represents Contracted Power.

@christian I worked with CSP team to have setting Contracted Power from REStful developed
Look for Lasse Simonsen and Søren Bruncke Mikkelsen to see if the same patch meet your requirement.
p.s the ppt you had from my project had the example of using the REStful to set contracted power.
