If it has those options, the settings location can vary. I have a old Samsung handset, I found the call/text blocking settings in the following locations.
Call blocking: Settings -> Applications -> Call -> All Calls
Text message blocking: Settings -> Applications -> Messages -> General Settings -> Block Messages
To be sure your handset supports blocking calls/texts from certain numbers, view the call log entry/text message and bring up the little info window. If one of the options is block, then your handset supports it. What I see when viewing an entry in my call log:

Rather than change your mobile number, have you thought of installing a Text & Call blocking app?
I can recommend Call Blocker, you can download it from the Google Play Store and use it for free; but this only allows you to store up to ten numbers, whereas the premium version allows for unlimited Calls and Text messages to be blocked.
If you want the premium version, and I really suggest getting it, the app costs £5.99.
