Most programs that can benefit the limiting of their bandwidth already provide that functionality.
What program are you talking about and how do you want to limit its bandwidth?

This is a possible idea but does take a bit of reading. If you installed a HTB qdisc then you can control the bandwidth per port or ip for source or destination. Try looking at

http://sourceforge.net/projects/htbinit/

and read up on queueing theory on
http://www.masterscripts.de/howto/en/Adv-Routing-HOWTO/

It is a bit advanced but there is a lot of documentation available and that script (1st link ) makes it very easy to do
