There are many ways to do that. Manually, place the
cursor (or "point") somewhere in a too-long line, and
press M-q (for `fill-paragraph'). If you like it,
consider enabling `auto-fill-mode' - that way, Emacs
will fill for you, when you type.

You can setup line width with the variable
`fill-column' - for example like this, in ~/.emacs

(setq fill-column 55)
