We talk about "hyphenation" to refer to the setting of hyphens generally. What you're referring to is breaking a word over two lines -- and I don't know of a special word for that. It is a type of hyphenation, and normally simply called "hyphenation".
Modern word-processing programs can be set to break words if necessary. They use a hyphenation algorithm to determine where it is possible to insert a word break.
