I want it like you do with the ringers but I don't see an option anyplace for the texts.

This link will get you close... but you want to customize ringer for SMS and MMS instead of email.

This will do what you want, but there is a downside. Quite often a contact with no custom tone assigned will use the last custom tone instead of the default tone. If you are setting this for most of the people who text you it works okay but if it's only for 1 or 2 of a dozen it might not be worth it.
