In order to still get the benefit of putting counters on Nivmagus Elemental and getting the spells effect, could I cast a spell, then, with say Nivix Guildmage, copy the spell, then exile the original to give the Elemental his counters

Yes, Nivmagus Elemental can exile copies of spells.
you can exile the copy or the original or both
if you exile the original be sure to wait until the copy ability has resolved and created the copy, otherwise it will be countered

Haha thanks. We just spent like 10 minutes trying to figure out how to make that card worth while

I suppose for two +1/+1 counters is worthwhile.

You could also use it to exile a spell that an opponent is going to counter anyways.

hmm. Precursor Golem and Xenograft selecting Golem and cast a spell at one of your creatures, HELLO COPIES! Meet Mr Nivmagus.

Just because I'm not entirely sure that the actual question got answered:

You may cast a spell (let's say Think Twice, for example), then copy the spell with Nivix Guildmage.  The copy of the spell will resolve before the original, letting you draw your card.  After the copy resolves, the original will still be on the stack, which can then be exiled with Nivmagus Elemental giving you your counters.
