The last comment about how to splice is dangerous and illegal in canada. The compression union is not a strong enough to support the pressure and maintain support through the constant use of the brakes. It is legal however to splice the line with a union block. You would have to cut out the bad section, and install new fittings on the existing good line. You will have to double flare the lines the same as original. You can purchase a ready made piece of steel line already flared that you can install between the two existing lines using 2 junction blocks. This is the only safe way to splice the line. Depending on the vehicle it's not that difficult to replace the entire line, just time consuming. Bending is an art, and flaring the lines would have to be done anyway.

A piece of steel brake line can be spliced into the broken line, but you'll need to make a clean cut at both ends of the place you choose to remove the damaged line, using an 'Imp' pipe-cutter, then use compression fittings (available where you purchase replacement brake line) and make sure they're tightened properly. Not too loose, not too tight. Just enough to crimp the brass fitting onto the steel line to hold the pressure. Try NAPA or a local auto parts supply store.

1996 Ford Thunderbird - What is this sagging cable?

It is your e-brake cable. e-brakes are mechanical, not hydraulic, therefore it has nothing to do with your master cylinder. adjust the cable at the e-brake itself or re-hang the cable to its rightful resting place.

If you can locate the Parking brake cable under the chassis, there should be a clevis that tensions two cables together, at this point you should be able to adjust the cables toward each other to tighten connections.

Not a good idea, if vehichle has abs then you can't blead it properly and even if it did'nt without bleading system, air in lines can cause brake failure.
