Can a VeriFone vx510 be wired into a dedicated phone line,process say a sale than let the line become active again so you can use said phone?

the terminal requires a dedicated analog phone line. it will allow you to use the phone while you are not using the terminal. if you are in the process of running a transaction and the phone rings or someone picks up the line you can get communication errors and will have to try to reconnect the communication so the sale can be processed.
it does work though but it causes some issues at times

This problem could have multiple causes. It sounds like you are receiving a settlement error, which are specific to each merchant services provider. You will have to call the merchant services provider so that they can look up the error message on their end and tell you what is causing the error. For example, the error message that you would receive if you use First Data would be different than the message you would get if you used Bank of America. Your terminal will not let you run any more cards until you resolve the settlement error. This is to prevent you from continuing to run cards in a corrupted batch, or a duplicate batch.

Can verifone vx510 (Omni 3730 work on a digital line?

It's really hit or miss. Some days they will work, some days they will not. You will only really run into a problem when your doing downloads or batching the terminal out. You will sometimes have problems running cards, but make sure you hit the reports key if you get a disconnect to make sure the transaction didn't go through already before running the card again.
