Here is a step-by-step guide for how to make your own ringtone using iTunes and some music you already have:

Once created you can then change your ringtone / text tone accordingly.

I very much doubt it as Ringtones are big business and there are plenty of websites that will happily charge you for a single Ringtone, so whilst there might be apps that do it (none that I am aware of) I would be extremely surprised if they were free.

The above process isn't complicated - I've customised my own ringtones using the same method.

You can create ringtones using JUST iTUNES.  There's no need to buy anything at all, or even obtain free software other than iTunes.  Here's how:

Here is a application that can do it for you but you will need to buy the full version or use the trail, it can export directly to your phone or to iTunes: BigaSoft iPhone Ringtone Maker

if it is exported directly to your phone it will need a reboot and from there it will show your ringtone, remember that the ringtone can only be 30sec long.

to make it clear,
you can only change stock apps tones (i.e ringtone, msg, mail..) and you cant change whatsapp ringtone and other non-stock apps unless you jailbreak your phone.
jailbreaking your phone gives you access to root device and you can change almost anything in the system and in the apps.

back to your problem, there are plenty of programs that convect mp3 to ringtones but most of them are not free and it is not that easy to find a good one.
but there is a simple way to do it using itunes only,
fast steps:
have the song you want in itunes
right click then click "get info" then options and change the duration (start time & ending time) but make it less of equal to 45 secs
click ok, then right click again and select create ACC,
you will get a new song with the same name
right click on that and select "show in windows explorer" if on windows, if on mac click on "show in finder"
finally change the extension to .m4r and sync it in itunes with your iphone under ringtones

good luck.
