It is true that Verizon supplies their own Music for ringtones so maybe they don't allow third party downloads.
Try phonezoo.com I use them for ringtones on my Verizon phone. You have to sign up but they send the ringtones directly to your phone and the rest is straightforward. The only downfall is that they don't have a license for copyright material so most is stuff people have recorded. I've gotten alot of fun, unique ringtones from there.

You need to check out some of the windows mobile forums to really get a handle on what you need...

Try this: (1) visit a website like mytinyphone.com or free-ringtones.ie on the Omnia. (2) find a tone you'd like. (3) click on either the "save to pc" or "click here to play" link. (4) choose the folder you'd like to save it in and rename the file if you'd like (5) if you want to use your download as a tone other than a ring tone (such as a messaging tone), you will have to save the file in the "windows" folder on your device.
