John C Calhoun did in fact believe that a state could nullify a federal law. In 1828 Calhoun secretly wrote the "South Carolina Exposition and Protest" very succinctly stating his beliefs on this issue.

He vigorously supported the right to keep slaves. He was not against continuing the practice. He was from South Carolina and he knew that slaves were vital to the state's cotton-based economy. More than believing in the preservation of slavery, he believed in the right of a state to keep slavery if it wanted to. He was very much against having the federal government abolish slavery and defended the right of a state to secede from the federal union if necessary to stop abolition.

Yes, John C. Calhoun supported sectionalism. He represented the South and did not support protective tariffs, supported slavery (and its important role in the South's economy), and was opposed to views of the North (abolitionism).
