1. Go ahead and throw it on. It won't hurt anything.
2. Depends on the shop. $50-100 an hour and should take 3 hours (safe low estimate). I'd expect between $200-500 to do the exhaust work. If it was just the downpipe back, it'd be much cheaper of course.
Honestly, you need a ratchet, a few deep sockets, a couple of extensions, a few wrenches, and some penetrating oil and you can get most of it done yourself. The downpipe will almost definitely require a hacksaw or reciprocating saw.
It may be your only purpose in life is to serve as a warning for others.
