    Put on the sd card in /media/audio/ringtones or /notifications for text/message alerts

    Hook up to the PC, 'mount' the device as a USB drive when prompted. This will display the SD card contents.

    Create folders as above, and put your music file there. It'll then be selectable from the list ;)

    Or download a file manager like Astro then you can move files on your phone. Still have to connect to get your music though

    Locate foulder named Notifications, drag and drop files into this foulder
    Dismount phone from PC

    Easiest thing to do without having to create folders or move music around is to go to Android Marketplace and type in "Tone Picker" install it then whenever you want to change a contact ringtone, message tone etc you'll now see an option for Tone Picker, click on that and all your music you've put on will be displayed.

    One of the top apps on there for me personally.

    No, but you can download "Note Everything" from the Android Market, and that does voice and text notes.

    That's what I use, although I've not had to make a note of anything yet so I can't comment on its effectiveness...
