I recommend to use convert-ly to update your old .ly files to
match the current Lilypond version.

Try meter' instead of metre'.

headsep is something completely different, it specifies the
vertical separation between the page number (the only thing in
the page header by default) and the main part of the page.
I'm not sure what you mean by "line of text", do you mean the
separation between the titling and the actual music or ...?

I find that Lilypond's default line breaking algorithm works
fairly well in most cases. Have you tried without these \break
