@MelodyMarast

Depending on your Android version, you should be having a PLUS (+) icon on the top right corner of the sound picker. This will allow you to pick from sound files stored on your phone.

Settings > Sounds > Ringtone

There you can find the +. At least in Oreo. Can’t remember  to do it in nougat, but you can for sure.

I have the same issue, the + sign is not there, it's definitely gone, I used it before, now it's not there anymore. 

My wife has the same handset, but she does have a +.

Could it be something I've enabled or disabled?

What about resetting your phone, just back up your data to factory settings it , it will surely be ok

Re: Set song as ringtone for sony xperia XA1

Probably because your sound is faulty. When setting the ringtone. There are many websites that download ringtones with mp3 file errors. You can check out the websites that download good ringtones: Zedge, SonnerieTelephone, RingtoneMob,.... It is very safe.
