How do I block a number or text message from a crazy ex. I want her to receive a notification or something that says the phone number is no longer in service or some error message.

I know there is a spam setting that it just goes into my spam folder but she still thinks it went through which could cause a problem. haha

Is there any recommend apps?

Call Sprint (or whoever your service provider is) and tell them you want to block her number. I've personally never had to do it myself so I don't know if it returns a "disconnected" message or not. That should stop the calls, and most likely texts.
