yes, all your ideas work, after their syntax having been brushed up a bit (see below inline):

a = 1; b = 2; Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 1}, 
  PlotLabel -> "a=" <> ToString[a] <> "\nb=" <> ToString[b]]

(*  \n is a character  *)

a = 1; b = 2; Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 1}, 
  PlotLabel -> SequenceForm["a=", a, "\n", "b=", b]]

a = 1; b = 2; Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 1}, 
  PlotLabel -> ColumnForm[{SequenceForm["a=", a] , SequenceForm["b=", b]}]]
