We are thinking of enabling a domain password policy.  We have some account though that we do not want to reset their passwords every 90 days because they are used for services or kiosks.  Would they be exempt if we check "User cannot change password" under Active directory users and computers?

Check that and also check "password never expires"
They won't have to change it after 90 days that way.  
Thanks

If you check the "user cannot change password" then all this will do is stop the user from changing the password meaning a phone call to the support desk when it expires.
You don't really need this setting, the one you need is "password never expires" as mentioned above.,
