That sounds like a procmail question you should ask on their mailing 
lists.  We don't do procmail -- we do Mailman.

Not possible.  A person can be listed in multiple groups (and switch 
between which group is considered the "active one"), but each file 
can have one and only one group id.

The long and short of it is that spam tagging filtering should be 
done in the MTA (not procmail), before the message gets delivered to 
Mailman.  Once Mailman receives the message, you can use the internal 
features to do further anti-spam processing based on tags that were 
placed on the message within the MTA.

Note that procmail should never be part of that pipeline.
