Have you looked into the Rollup feature?
You're referring to both Progress lines and Progress bars. They are two
different things. A Progress Line is a line that runs down through the
entire Gantt Chart. A Progress Bar is a bar and/or shape that is displayed
on each task's gantt line.
You refer to "a progress bar down the center of the 'group by summary' on
the gantt chart", and I'm not sure if you're referring to, displaying a
progress bar within each task, as a vertical shape (thus 'down the center'),
or displaying one Progress Line down the entire gantt chart.
FYI: You can hide the dependency lines on tasks: [Format][Layout] select the
first item in the [Links] section and click [OK]
