There's an app for that.

The stock messaging app I see does not do what you ask. Why not explore what other messaging apps are out there?

You should be able to add your own notification and ring tones by creating a Notifications folder and a Ringtones folder at the root level of your SD Card. You can then place your sound files (such as mp3 files for example) in these directories and they should show up in your selection of sounds for the Notification ringtone and phone ringtones in your sound settings - Also, be sure to keep the sounds a short duration ~20 secs should be fine as an example.

Hope this helps you.
