    yes you can set up custom ringtone for different contacts..
    to do so, proceed as follows..
    Go to Apps >> Choose the app 'People' >> Select Contact >> Select Ringtone >> Now choose the ringtone from the appeared list of music files..
    this will enable you to set a specific ringtone for the user..
    You can now distinguish the caller just by ringtone only..

    dear friend

    sorry but there is no such way so that you can select ringtone for particular contact
    there is common ringtone which is applied for all
    to select that
    go to music player
    open any tone
    long press on that
    then click on select as ringtone
