Generally those things are made with (info "(gnus)Group Parameters").
Most of these parameters can be set via elisp using the
`gnus-parameters' variable.  But the `visible' parameted cannot:

,----[ (info "(gnus)Group Parameters") ]
| `visible'
|      If the group parameter list has the element `(visible . t)', that
|      group will always be visible in the Group buffer, regardless of
|      whether it has any unread articles.
|      This parameter cannot be set via `gnus-parameters'. See
|      `gnus-permanently-visible-groups' as an alternative.

But as you see, you can set `gnus-permanently-visible-groups' in your
~/.gnus.el to achieve your goal.

Hope that helps,
