Where can I get CUE Sheets and M3U's?

I have ripped FLAC files (single files for each song) I am converting to MP3. I would like to find online CUE Sheets and M3U's for the albums for these songs.

what would make your player play the separate tracks with the proper spacing between the songs as the album would have them?

Nothing, if the rip was done correctly. CUE sheets are not necessary for gapless playback at all.

I ripped my CDs to separate tracks with EAC, not as one FLAC file for the entire album, would this still be the case?

Yes. Kohlrabi did not qualify his statement with any limitations, so it applies to all methods of storage. Sure, you’d need a cue-sheet or some other method if you wanted to demarcate tracks for a single-file image, but it would still play gaplessly in any case. And nothing stops capable players from transitioning seamlessly between tracks that are stored as separate files; given a sane format, it’s trivial, and it shouldn’t be affected either way by whether or not you have some textual file saying ‘Oi, these tracks go together.’

You may find it enlightening to simply try these things rather than asking. Do your phone and player support gapless playback, with or without sundry playlists? Test it and see.
