The distance from a point C to the line AB is the length of the segment from C to AB?

That is correct. The distance from a point C to a line AB is the length of the perpendicular segment drawn from point C to line AB. This forms a right angle, creating a right triangle with the segment as the hypotenuse. The length of this perpendicular segment is the shortest distance from the point to the line.

What is the measure of line segment AB if A is 5 and B is 30 degrees?

The question cannot be answered. If AB is a line segment then A and B are normally the end-points of that segment. If A and B are points then A cannot be 5 and B cannot be 30 degrees. If A and B are not end-points of a line segment, it is not at all clear from the question what they are and how they relate to the line segment, AB.

Usually a line segment in a triangle is either assigned a letter, or is referred to by the letters at the end of the segment with a line overhead. For instance, if you have a triangle ABC, you'll have segments AB, AC, and BC. And there would be a line over each segment name.
