App selection does nothing for text alerts or the alerts for low battery, wifi network status and so on. So sure, you can choose a specific sound you download for apps like Facebook, but not sms texts or phone specific alerts except ringtones
First thing first, have you looked in your download folder and moved them to the right location?
For me since I flash Roms all the time, to keep the ones I download I put them in /system/media/audio/ringtone or notification.
For them to appear in list, I have to reboot.
