There's an important element you do not discuss in your description of
what you want: do you want the "line-wrapping" to be done on the
buffer's content (so that the saved file does not contain lines longer
than 75 chars), or only on its rendering on screen?

auto-fill-mode and M-q modify the actual buffer content, whereas things
like visual-line-mode only affect the display rendering.

There are ways to trick the rendering engine to do the line-wrapping at
a particular column (e.g. the same column as fill-column).  The simplest
way is to resize the window.
