If you have any expression that defines a line, you can find the slope of the line. After you have found the slope of the line, you can then write an expression describing the line in slope intercept form. You can't define a slope-intercept form for any nonlinear equation, because the slope is always* changing; there are often several intercepts as well.

The equation for a line is y = mx + b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

No, you need either two points, one point and a slope, one point and a y-intercept, or a y-intercept an a slope. You can also write the equation of a line with an equation of another line but you would have to know if it is parallel or perpendicular.
