Not sure if you are asking for help, suggesting a feature or
interested in implementing this.

With SPICE you can't do it. SPICE copies the clipboard data from
the client, transfer it to spice-vdagent which transfer it to
guest's clipboard (x11 only, no wayland support)

You could hack spice-vdagent to interact with something else
other than x11's clipboard if that's something you are interested
