Anywhere from $500-$800 depending on the shop but make sure you bring it to a reputable shop though. If the shop doesn't do it right, it could be a major headache.

port and polishing the head makes the biggest difference when aftermarket cams, high comp pistons come into play as well as forced induction. IMO well worth the money in the long run.

go with the swap, that kind of money into the head, then the bottom end will go out.
