    You can spray paint over this material; but, for safety's sake remove the asbestos.  The paint will adhere to the material so you are physically able to repaint it; but, asbestos is very dangerous material and mainly affects the lungs.

    Personally, I don't think spray paint is much of a shield between your lungs and the asbestos.

    You can paint over it but it will peel off and your not going to want to keep the asbestos around for health reason

    Yes, in the case of popcorn ceilings, use a latex paint.  It will actually help seal the asbestos fibers.  The fibers are dangerous when they become airborne.
