Q: Is it possible that I can download only messages attachments from iCloud backup?
A: iCloud does not specially store Messages and Messages attachments, however like other data on your iPhone your messages database should be included in your iCloud backup. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to retrieve only specific information like messages attachments from an iCloud backup. You must restore the entire backup onto your iPhone or another iOS device in order to access anything in it. This requires erasing your device and setting it up from scratch.
