To set a default ring tone for phone calls, go to Menu -> Settings -> Personalize -> Default Ring Tone.

To set a default ring tone for texts, from the home screen tap Messages, then Menu -> Settings -> Notification sound. Here you can make it the default (same as for phone calls,) or set a different one.

To set a special ringtone for individual people, go to that person's contact entry, and scroll down and tap "Ringtone".

There is a free app called "Group Ringtones" which can set a ring tone for groups of people, such as favorites or if you have your contacts set up in groups. This app simply does a batch ringtone change for each member of the group, but it's handy.

The email and other apps also have places to set the notification sound for each type of event that happens on your phone, so look in each of those apps to set a custom ring tone there. It's usually called a "notification" so remember than when you're searching for the settings.
