Feel free to adjust the recipe to taste. To make it more spicy, add more horseradish or throw in a little hot sauce.  The shrimp cocktail sauce keeps for quite a while, so feel free to make it ahead of time to make life easier they day you plan to serve it. Shrimp comes in different sizes, so you'll have to adjust cooking times a bit. You'll figure the best time for your air fryer after you've cooked a batch.
