You know what would be really useful for this is the old Hypercard indexing engine! ;-)

Seriously though, splitting to an array does not help as there is currently no way to search the elements of an array. Since repeat for each line does a kind of line indexing in memory, it should be much faster if you check for each thing being searched for in a single pass.

Like "lineOffset", "lineAtOffset" would take the same arguments and
operate similarly, but rather than returning the number of the matching
line it would return the text of that line.
