You can't specify a limit of a resource for stored procedures. Only users or applications.
For backing up with limited resource, create a user only for running backups and set is limit in resource governor, so when that user runs a backup will run it with the specified resource limit.
Here's an example of the code:
-- Before this the Login need to be created first
EXEC sp_addrolemember 'db_backupoperator', 'LoginName';

-- Configure Resource Governor.
BEGIN TRAN
USE master;
-- Create a resource pool that sets the MAX_CPU_PERCENT to 20%. 
CREATE RESOURCE POOL pMAX_CPU_PERCENT_20
   WITH
      (MAX_CPU_PERCENT = 20);
GO
-- Create a workload group to use this pool. 
CREATE WORKLOAD GROUP gMAX_CPU_PERCENT_20
USING pMAX_CPU_PERCENT_20;
GO
-- Create a classification function.
-- Note that any request that does not get classified goes into 
-- the 'Default' group.
CREATE FUNCTION dbo.rgclassifier_MAX_CPU() RETURNS sysname 
WITH SCHEMABINDING
AS
BEGIN
    DECLARE @workload_group_name AS sysname
      IF (SUSER_NAME() = 'LoginName')
          SET @workload_group_name = 'gMAX_CPU_PERCENT_20'
    RETURN @workload_group_name
END;
GO

-- Register the classifier function with Resource Governor.
ALTER RESOURCE GOVERNOR WITH (CLASSIFIER_FUNCTION= dbo.rgclassifier_MAX_CPU);
COMMIT TRAN;
GO
-- Start Resource Governor
ALTER RESOURCE GOVERNOR RECONFIGURE;
GO

Disclaimer: This code is based in the this MSDN article so the example is set a limit of 20% of CPU usage. Of course you can change it to a value that you want.
