Currently XP users are logging into a Windows 2003 server domain with a screen showing:

User name
Password
Domain Name

How do I change this login screen to

Username@Domain Name
Password

Can I do this just for certain AD accounts and if so how?

You have to manipulate the msgina.dll

Use resource hacker to open up the dll and explore it and you can find teh relevant sections within teh dll

You can apply a different image to different users by having a different msgina.dll for different users and using group policy to apply the relevant dll at log on

Where do I find the resource hacker you described?  Will this changed msgina file be overwritten with Windows updates?
