SayHi seems to replicate WhosHere. The plus side of it is that it has a map function so you're able to see how many users are currently online. The downside of the app is that it uses your exact GPS location which might not go down with some users (ie. using the app at home/office).

Since it varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, ...

The rumored Google Babel may be the solution you are looking for. Hopefully it will be announced/released before or at Google I/O.

In Facebook, you can change the notification sound from Facebook > Menu > Settings > Notification ringtone. I assume it would be the same for Messenger, never used it though
