Do any of the switches mentioned in the link allow that processes are started taking up lesser resources

Lesser resources no - just lower priority. They'll consume the same amount of cpu, memory, disk space etc but do it more slowly.

The impact on your other processes will be lower if this is a cpu intensive job.

There are no options to influence memory usage which is always under system control.
There are options to set priority but this does not directly influence how much CPU time the process will get. If the process in question is CPU bound and there are no other CPU bound applications running it will receive near 100% CPU time, regardless of what the priority might be.
