When did ice hockey change the number of lines on the ice from 7 to 5?

Ice hockey has always used 5 lines: the red centre (Canadian spelling) line, two blue lines that mark each teams' respective zone, and the two red goal lines. The remaining two lines that you are likely referring to would not be seen on an NHL ice surface, but would be seen in many hockey rinks that accommodate ringette as well as hockey. These would be two red lines that run width-wise from board to board in each end zone, across the top of the face-off circles. These lines are the "ringette lines". I don't know exactly what they are used for in ringette, but I believe only a certain number of players may be below the ringette line during a game of ringette.
