Is there a way to set a 'nice' priority for a particular user?

Why, yes-- see /etc/login.conf and the priority keyword.
Some shells also let you adjust the priority levels for various users.

Also, when I run this:

nice -n 5 /usr/bin/spamd -d -c -m 5

I get:

nice: Badly formed number.

I ran a man page on it, and this is the right format, but its not working.

Many shells offer nice as a built-in keyword, with syntax that may vary slightly from what /usr/bin/nice uses. Either try "/usr/bin/ nice -n 5 _command_", or use "nice 5 _command_" under csh/tcsh. sh/ ksh/zsh ought to understand the -n flag and be more similar to the external command under /usr/bin.
