How do you set a certain program to load at startup slower than the rest? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

There is no way you can change the startup order. Having said that, there are programs that create just one entry (theirs), and then run each program one by one at startup.

Visit and take a look at the 'system utilities' section.
