SOURCE: what is the labor time to replace valve cover

I'm not sure what the labor time is but technically it doesnt take ALL that long. Besides removing a few parts to clear a way to the covers. I would assume somewhere around 3-5 hours is what you might get hit up for.

SOURCE: valve cover gaskets

Valve cover gaskets are a snap, even for a real dummy.  Get a set, don't fall for the "BEST IN THE MARKET".  All you need is a cheap set of something, that will seal the covers.  Get a small tube or bottle of NON-HARDENING sealer.  Clean both surfaces , put some sealer on the engine, and the valve cover, put the gasket in place and tighten it down to a few foot pounds of torque.  It doesn't need to be cranked down tight enough to hold back an elephant, just enough to squeeze the gasket.  Let it dry overnight before you start the engine.
