This is generally known as QOS. It depends on the modem/router. Please report make and model of the modem/router.

I suppose you own a "BiPAC 7800NXL". You should be able since the features include "QoS for traffic prioritization and bandwidth management". You should just read the User Manual and follow the instructions.

The problem is that both the web browsing and the "heavy downloads" are probably both http traffic on port 80 or port 443.  Normally QOS is done by classifying traffic either by protocol(based on port used) or by network address.  Unless your heavy downloaders always download from the same places, you won't be able to differentiate the traffic.  Now if heavy download means ftp/bit-torrent or something other than port 80 traffic, then you may be able to do it.

I believe most of it is torrents, how can I "stem the flow"?

The manual gives you directions on how to do this.
