The impression is the top edge of of the spoke. You can try setting the impression on the L. side to a lower setting or replacing the printwheel. If you have the ability you can find the under score on the P/W and remove a little from the top edge.

How do I apply an underscore in an email address?

On most keyboards, the underscore is Shift+Hyphen (usually to the right of 0 on the standard keyboard's row above the QWERTY keys). If you want to underline an email address and your email program supports HTML, you can use <span style="text-decoration: underline;"> </span>. (You could alternatively make the email address a mail-to link, <a href=""></a> .)

I hope this helps.

- key does this: '-' and when I hold shift and do this _ it does this. "_

That's how it's suppose to be. When you press the hyphen (-) you get a hyphen(-) and when you hold shift and press the hyphen(-) you get an underscore(_).
If what you really mean is they are reversed or behaving funny you might have sticky keys on. To turn off sticky keys go in to Control Panel > Ease and Access Center > "Make the keyboard easier to use" and make sure sticky keys is unchecked.
If this is not the issue or you need more assistance feel free to comment back.

The underscore key has an additional hyphen above it when typed. How do I get rid of the additional hyphen?

The P/W is probably worn. Get a new printwheel or you can try moving the impression control to a lower setting. If the paper gets a bulge in it and pick up the top of the printwheel.
