Hi Bear1481...

Welcome to Android Forums. I have moved your thread to the Nexus 7 support forum for assistance from the other users of this device.

Good luck.

Give Ringdroid a try. I have used this app for years and it is fantastic. You can cut your music files and save them as ringtones/alarms/etc.

You can put audio files in the /sdcard/Alarms folder and they will be available in the list of alarms for any app that allows you to set an alarm.

I'm afraid you can't do that directly from the tablet. You have the option to make a song available offline but it's not downloaded as an mp3 so it can only be used by Play Music.
You can however download it to your pc using the browser and copy it over.
