In my .emacs init file I have commands like

How can I run a command like this from within emacs? It doesn't seem to be
recognized when I try "M-x fset".

This is just the expression generated when you save a macro. Try C-h f 'delete-whole-line and a *Help buffer will show this. You could shorten the macro name to 'dln and it would work the same. Try this and then invoke with M-x dln. So it's just go to beginning of line, kill line, kill newline. You can define keyboard macros and not save them if you need them for only one session.
