Answer
Adding it to a VOIP land line (coming through Internet, Voice Over Internet Protocol) is easy to do. In America and I think in Europe many consumers use VOIP as their landline service.

Adding ringtones to analog landline phones is really difficult. It would require a digital add on of some kind to accomplish it and the home telephone would need to be totally redesigned.  I suppose it could be developed as an "add-on" with a little box by the side of the phone instrument that functioned the ringtone feature.  Maybe...   Same story for cordless; if the cordless phone is merely communicating to the analog service it is the same problem albeit easier to add as an "add-on" feature perhaps.

Have a happy day.
