I know there are several professional photoshop plugins (I know that Pantone makes one not sure what its called) that will do what you want although none of them are as accurate as simply doing that by hand. (create new swatch from library, select a color range and paste the new color).

I should point out though that the only reason I can think of for converting something to spot colors is for offset printing. However, your image has way more than 4 colors so your going to end up with something like 8-9 different spot colors which will cost you way more in the long run then simply printing 4 color process (4 plates to produce every color vs 8-9 plates that will probably cause banding because it won't display all colors properly)
