I wonder what factor is more important in making a main thoroughfare, like King Street (or Main, for that matter) a more liveable, pedestrian-friendly milieu: light rail or two-way traffic flow?

The two are both necessary factors and will actually reinforce each other. Neither by itself is a magic bullet. LRT and two-way conversion are both material acts in the service of making the streets livable. (Also necessary is the proper regulatory framework for the transit corridor to allow and encourage high quality intensification and mixed use development.)
