You can NOT assign ringtones to specific callers. You can assign a different notification (including the ringtone) to different types of incoming communications. This is done in "Profiles". You can have a different notification for Level 1 messages, 'other' messages, SMS, the phone itself, browser messages, etc.
You can define a group of people in Email Filters. On the handheld it is in messages, options, email filters. Here you can list people in the from field that you want a differnt alert for incoming Messages, NOT PHONE CALLS. At the bottom of the filter is the option to have the message be forwarded with Level 1 notification. This is the closest one can come to what you are asking.
You can also 'edit' filters on the handheld, adding people as necessary. You can create and edut filters in the Desktop Manager, too.
