Hello RunsWithScissors, I'm not a pro in this area. But i htink using the samplerinfo facing ratio will do the trick. connect it to the UV coordinates of the Ramp, and use can another ramp for color gain.
Or you may be satisfied with connecting the samplerinfo facing ratio only to one of the UV coord or the ramp.

hope this may help out.

I know that it will in volve the Sampler info but I need a way to check to see if the lightsource is behind the camera ir not.

This is not real effect but you can fake it realy simply. Just use ramp shader and create something like that:
Then create directional light pointing almost (but not exactly) the same direction as your camera (you can controll it using expressions). Render your image and use this "mask" to create color glow effect in compositing software.
