1. You can install some app for that, like Ringo or similar. But, you can do it step by step:

Quote:
It’s pretty straightforward in truth. Here’s how:-
Connect the phone to your computer via the USB cable
Open the Notifications screen on your phone (pull down a finger from the top of the screen to the bottom) and select the USB Storage notification
Choose “Mount”
Browse to the SD Card on your PC
Look for a folder called media, if it’s not there, create it by right clicking and choosing New Folder, then rename the folder to be media
Inside the media folder, you need a folder called audio, again, if it’s not there create it as above
Inside the audio folder, you can create a subfolder for the sound category you want to change-
ringtones – for sound files you want to use as ringtones
alarms – for sound files you want to use for any alarms
notifications – for incoming notifications such as SMS alerts, emails, etc
Copy the sound or music file which you’d like to use as your ringtone in to the relevant folder
You should now see your sound or music file listed in the menu for selection in the relevant sound settings menu (to access the ringtone/notification settings, press the hard Menu key from one of your home screens, then press Settings then Sounds and Display)

2. If you are using SenseUI you just need to use one of the SenseUI widgets. Or, you can just press and hold on your Home screen and select Add Shortcut - Contact
Devices: HTC Tattoo > HTC Wildfire > SE Xperia Arc S
Rom: CyanogenMod

There are no official themes for the Tattoo...just one black theme and a transparent lockscreen...also you can modify your bootscreen...
look in the themes and apps section of this forum...

As dejandekic just said - to add a contact, just: press with your finger and hold on your Home screen and a new window pops up. then select Add Shortcut -> Contact

Well, there are quite some android widgets doing this for you...google a bit around...I found "Contacts! Widget" which seems to be pretty much what you're searching for...don't want to exclude that I misunderstood u^^
