So there are a few different places you'd need to make changes in source code:

First - agent code to tell CloudStack to spawn machines that use SPICE

Second - there's the functionality that the console proxy provides
(essentially it proxies the vnc session to provide isolation of the
end user from the hypervisor, and presents that as a javascript
interface to the end user.) So I suppose you could use something like

All of that said, I am not certain that this is the best path - the
console proxy isn't really designed for true remote desktop
functionality like RDP and SPICE provide, but rather to be something
akin to OBM/LOM access on a physical server - good enough when you
have no network, but not something you'd tolerate every day. It's also
KVM-specific afaik.
