I want to re-purpose a ceiling fan motor and would like to have each of the three speeds available on their own switch (or position on a toggle). Is this possible? and if so how should I go about this?

There is, in general, two types of ceiling fan motors: those that have multiple taps from the stator windings or those that have a single stator winding with several capacitor values that can be switched in series with that winding.
This is most easily done with a rotary switch.
