The function add_line(), as far as I can tell, requires the use of a port number as part of the origin and destination arguments. If you remove a port from a Simulink model, Simulink automatically renumbers the ports.
This can be a maintenance problem if one were to script the interconnections in a Simulink system, and then need to alter a sub-system.
Is there any way to get add_line() to work with a port name instead of port number?

No, this is not possible. The function add_line can currently only be used by providing the port handles or points.
