I need to integrate a
users table instead of the default Joomla
pref_users has simple id/user/email/password fields (not hashed). Is there anyway I can make Joomla use it instead of the default table for users?

You can check user helper file in Joomla! library
You will find all related functions over there. To convert pain text to hash password there is a function called
getCryptedPassword. This function accepts several arguments. In most cases default arguments works perfectly, but You can use them as per your need.
With default argument:
$passwordhash = JUserHelper::getCryptedPassword('plain_text_password');
