I have a question about using the pfhline, is it possible to have a hole in the line at a random location, and if so, how would I go about making it?

I think so with pfpixel or pfhline using the on and off switch like I did for the walls in Pac man eat and run and for the Safe house in that game.

One performance and size optimization is to access the playfield variables instead of line drawing commands.  Each variable is eight pixels on the screen. The value 255 is like eight pixels drawn in a row. 

So, you want a line near the middle of the screen?  Try:
var20 = 255 : var21 = 255 : var22 = 255 : var23 = 255
