i'll show you one simple sample with both answers:
.............................................................................
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
 <fo:root xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">
 
   <fo:layout-master-set>
     <fo:simple-page-master master-name="simple"
                   page-height="29.7cm"
                   page-width="21cm"
                   margin-top="1cm"
                   margin-bottom="2cm"
                   margin-left="2.5cm"
                   margin-right="2.5cm">
       <fo:region-body margin-top="3cm"/>
       <fo:region-before extent="3cm"/>
       <fo:region-after extent="1.5cm"/>
     </fo:simple-page-master>
   </fo:layout-master-set>
 
 
   <fo:page-sequence master-reference="simple">
        <fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">

                          <fo:block>Some text on the first line</fo:block>

                          <!-- draw empty line here -->
                          <fo:block><fo:leader leader-pattern="space" /></fo:block>

                          <!-- draw horizontal line -->
                          <fo:block><fo:leader leader-length="100%" leader-pattern="rule" rule-style="dashed" rule-thickness="2px" /></fo:block>

                          <fo:block>Some text on the 3rd line</fo:block>
                  
          </fo:flow>
   </fo:page-sequence>

  </fo:root>

.............................................................................

you can play with rule-style and rule-thickness to achive better effect you need.
