As far as priming with caramel, amber candi syrup could be used for that. It's pricy, but it should be sterile and unlike caramelized table sugar it is close to 100% fermentable.

As far as choosing caramel malts, the caramel 40 to caramel 60 range will give you the flavor you're looking for. Kettle caramelization may also get you there.

"In addition to caramel malts, you get some caramel flavor from the boil, particularly a long one, although that's more melanoidin/maillard reactions than actual caramelization. Although if you boil under the right conditions you can get some caramelization."
in the boil KETTLE
