Can you setup a DHCP server to assign the same ip address each time to a specific port?

You don't assign IP addresses to ports (unless you mean ports on a managed switch) they are assigned to the actual NIC's of devices. You can make exclusions in your DHCP server and then manually configure static addresses on certain devices though.

sorry maybe I explained this wrong...

What I Need: To have a DHCP give the same IP address to any device that connects to one specific port.
My Setup: I have multiple devices that connect and disconnect to one specific port. I have a route setup for a specific IP address. So I need that specific IP address sent to any device that connects to that port.
Question: Can I use DHCP to do this?

Use a managed switch

I am not sure if this is what you need, but you could setup multiple VLAN's (one per port) and have the device attached to that port get the assigned IP address.
