The simple answer is: You don't have to edit headers at all. If you
want something to be part of the same thread, you hit Reply and don't
change the subject line. If you want something to be a spin-off
thread, you hit Reply and *do* change the subject. If you want it to
be a brand new thread, you don't hit Reply, you start a fresh message.
Any decent mailer will do the work for you.

Replying is more than just quoting a bunch of text and copying in the
subject line with "Re:" at the beginning. :)
