In case it's not clear, what Jason talking about is inline graphics, 
where you can paste a graphical element into the body of some text in a 
text frame.
As he says, you select your graphic, in this case a horizontal line, 
copy it (Ctrl+C, for example), then in Edit Contents mode in a text 
frame, paste (Ctrl+V).
