<ちゃん> should be used mostly with young children and also when a man is talking to a young woman whom he knows well.
Milantex touched up on <様> a bit. I should point out that Japan does not have a president. :) Their head of government is the Prime Minister. The head of state is the Emperor.
I don't think you'd use <様> with the Prime Minister but you definitely would with the Emperor. Although not with his name, you have to say <天皇様>.
Generally, <様> isn't used much in modern Japanese with people's names, only with certain titles.

The only place I've ever heard 様 used frequently is with 客様 "customer-sama."

In Minami-ke you can frequently hear Chiaki refer to her sister as Haruka nee-sama. And then there is also "Kore ga watashi no goshujin-sama". Great fun! :lol:
