for a normal drupal site with 200 hits per day i would suggest a normal small instance. it will be sufficient to handle this much of load

a samll instance cost $0.085/hour. for more details you can check here
http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/pricing/

for static content deliver i would also suggest cdn which is also available with aws.

you can get this calculated here

http://calculator.s3.amazonaws.com/calc5.html

ec2 provides raw machine where you can install anything. you can also use prebuilt machine images for your purpose. so technically yes, you can install any cms there.

for details on small instance you can check this page

http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/

a small instance is as below

Small Instance (Default) 1.7 GB of memory, 1 EC2 Compute Unit (1 virtual core with 1 EC2 Compute Unit), 160 GB of local instance storage, 32-bit platform

you don't require all the complex stuff. just add one small linux instance with 24 hours/day. one elastic ip.

for data in and out i assume 10 gb in and 100 gb out. so this would cost you around $75/month.

if data out is reduced say 10gb then the cost would be $62. you can also shut down the instance when not in use to reduce the cost.

shutting down is optional if you see that there is no use of site in certain hours, so you can put it on halt

normal configuration is
Small Instance (Default) 1.7 GB of memory, 1 EC2 Compute Unit (1 virtual core with 1 EC2 Compute Unit), 160 GB of local instance storage, 32-bit platform

elastic ip is ip for server which you'll need to bind with domain. that wont' add much to the cost.
