I think that trying to use the M13 as a way to match other player's tones is ultimately going to lead to a lot of frustration. Signature tones are more a product of the amp, guitar, and pickup selection than anything else. I guess using some of the dirt models on the M13 will get part of the way to the tone your looking for, but I think you'd be much better off spending your time making your rig sound as best as it can rather than copying other players. If you really need to nail tones for a cover band situation, you may want to look at the POD stuff and the CustomTone site.
I tend to think that as long as your in the general neighborhood of tone for a cover, you'll be OK. As long as you get the riff right, and the audience can generally recognize what you're doing, it's all good. Unless you're a true tribute band, it's better to make the song your anyway.
If you're looking for help with things like delay times and such, your best bet would be to name specific songs.

Yeah, I guess i should have worded my situation more like
"I have bands where i really like there tones, and i cant seem to get decent tones cause im not sure which parameter to change on a pedal to achieve the desired effect on the overall sound. Or perhaps which pedal i should add to the loop."

This site shows what a lot of guitarists from a lot of bands are actually playing through, so it may be a good place to start. As far as specific settings, I'd say it's a combination of experimenting and experience. It will be worth your while to simply take some time and see what the different parameters of the effects on the M13 do. Eventually you'll get used to what the different effects sound like and you'll start to pick them out on songs.
I know that this probably isn't the answer you wanted, but I think in the long run it's always better to figure stuff out for yourself rather than rely on someone else's interpretation. This site gives a pretty good basic explanation of what different effects actually do.

Those site were pretty useful, i guess now i just need to figure out with the different parameters of each pedal do, such as the effects of changing the "filter" "mid" "comp" or "tone" of different pedals.
