The file you mentioned is "/usr/bin/env -i /bin/bash --noprofile --norc".
The spaces are being treated as part of the file name, it's not parsing it
as a shell command line (what shell should it use to parse it, if the whole
point is to specify the shell to use?).

Try creating a shell script that contains the "/usr/bin/env" command you
want, and then specify the pathname of that script as the shell to use with
M-x term.
