It's not terribly hard, easier if it's a four cylinder than a six. You can judge for yourself, look under the hood, If you have a plastic engine cover in there, take it off, it's just snapped on and usual plastic. The valve covers are rectangular metal covers the length of the engine and perhaps 4" wide. You have one if a four, and two if a six. The four cylinder design is right in th middle, the six are two on each side.
Now look at the wires and hoses and how many need to be moved to get at the six or so fasteners that hold it down. This is where most of the time is. It's just a matter of getting the fasterners loose and removing the cover. Scrap off the old gasket, which probably isn't going to be much. Use for locktite silcon sealer put on new gasket fastner cover back down.
I usually can do this in about an hour. Therefore answer to your question is $60-80 labor depending where you have it done. The gaskets are probably $25. You can check this online at one of many parts suppliers. One I like is Rockauto.
There you go.

Pull the alternator brackets and front engine brackets off until you get to the water pump. You will also need to remove the fan shroud and then the fan. Remove the water pump and then you will see an aluminum cover and that will be your timing cover. remove the cover and clean all the gasket off the engine and the cover. use a razor blade, and make sure there in no oil or grease on the parts where the gasket lies. Put your gasket on, bolt the cover back on with the new gasket and repeat the teardown process in reverse.
