For iPhone users just swipe towards right on the chosen chat or group and select the pin option.
Similarly, you can unpin the chats later when not in need.

To bookmark the message, just tap and hold the message from your chat and then tap on the star icon at the top of the WhatsApp window. All your starred messages get encapsulated in the Starred Messages folder which you can access from the 3-dots menu option in Android and via Settings tab on iPhone.
