Oversimplification warning!

Resistors control the torque of the motor, not the speed.
Voltage controls the speed, and PWM is a good way to control voltage in this context.
It's so easy to do PWM with almost anything with MMBasic.

Suggest use any transistor, Maybe Darlington, or 20p ULN type chip to power motor.
Don't forget a freewheeling diode though.

Alternatively.. post project requirement in details here,
TBS is full of clever helpful people !
