You can run spamc/spamd as anyone. I have created a spamc user that does
all the work, I'm doing sitewide filtering. Spamd is started with:

exec /usr/bin/spamd \
        -a \
        -d \
        -u spamc \
        -L \
        -x \
        -m 10

Subject line tagging depends on how you call spamd. If you are using
something like qmail-scanner for example, you may have to play with your
compile flags there. Ultimately, spamd is going to use the
/usr/mail/spamassassin/local.cf file for anything that you want to
change from default.

I would seriously consider taking all these issues over to the
Spamassassin list. You'll get good answers there.
