It is possible to add new system sounds to OS x. Almost any sound you can get into the computer can be used as a system alert sound. There are a few things to keep in mind

1. Keep them relatively short. In most cases once a sound starts playing it does not stop till it gets to the end.
2. Save the sounds as uncompressed .aiff files. This allows usage in the OS itself. Some other files will not work.
3. Alert sounds must be in .aiff format to appear in the Sound preference pane.

I wrote this a while ago but the directions should still wok It covers the basics of adding system sounds as well as adding sounds to iCal.
