This sounds like a job for VBA (a macro).

Do you just want to rip through all the tables and change them without
visually checking first? If, in the end, all tables must have the same
indent, then I wouldn't bother with the part about "find all tables with
a certain indent". I'd just set them all.

Dim objTable as Table

For Each objTable in ActiveDocument.Tables
With objTable
.PreferredWidthType = wdPreferredWidthPoints
.Rows.Alignment = wdAlignRowLeft
.Rows.LeftIndent = InchesToPoints(0)
End With
Next objTable
