The fact is that, for whatever reason, Nikon have chosen to omit this feature from all their lower-end SLR's for at least the last 15 years. I seriously doubt they are going to change their approach now, especially given the low probability that an owner of such a camera will want to use such a lens. That doesn't help you, of course, but that's the way it is.
The lens you mentioned with "two aperture rings" was of the type known as "preset", by the way. I had one myself. One chose one's aperture value with the main ring, metered the shot, then manually opened up using the secondary ring in order to frame and focus before stopping down to the pre-set value to take the shot. We worked a lot slower in those days!
