I think, that was meant to be

    (setq message-citation-line-function
    (setq messate-citation-line-format "On %d.%m.%Y %f wrote:\n")

You may need to reload Gnus for new settings to take effect.

Yes, it is. Looks like that you'd better use `M-x customize-variable` to
edit settings, because that way you get contextual documentation right
at your fingertips.
Happy Hacking.
