Yes it is, just highlight the contact, push the menu key and add custom ringtone.

Profiles are for more general customization. Setting up a profile just to customize one contact's ringtone is totally unnecessary. Best to do it like zerog46 says.

Setting up a Pofile for a contact allows you to set a ringtone for incoming text as well, but it's not 100% accurate. Sometimes unassigned contacts will pick up the last used Profile. I only use this for 2 contacts because of this. All others use the easier call only customize option.

I have 2 custom profiles:
Sleeping (so everything is really low and other things don't make any noise)
and then sound only with no vibrate. hehe.

Sound only --> Home
Sleeping --> wanna take a shot in the dark?
