The station will be renamed Lansdowne on April 8.

From boston.com: The MBTA is renaming Yawkey Station after another nearby street.

Yeah, they renamed Yawkey St back to Jersey St; The Earl of Jersey was supposedly involved in the slave trade!

What is the cost of the name change to signs, etc?

And when will the last map in the system showing the station as Yawkey be updated?

There is a pending signage-pocalypse when the GLX comes online, anyway..

I suspect that only signage/maps at soon-to-be-Lansdowne station will actually be fully changed out. Maps at other locations will likely get stickers, as was done with other comparatively small changes like the opening of Assembly.
