I get it now: I think you want to handle a very long line that
disappears off the end of the buffer by making it go to the next line
instead and have little arrows at each end to indicate that it is all
the same line -- probably called 'wrapping'.  Fill-paragraph puts line
feed (or is it carriage return?) characters at the end of each screen
line so that it appears as a neat block of text.

I am afraid we have reached the limit of my experience of these things.
If M-q isn't doing anything it is a bit strange though.

May be someone more useful will respond to your question.
