I would probably say that ACS should only really be deployed on a VM now as the 1121 appliance is EoS.  The latest version of ACS is 5.4 and will run on VMWare.

Costs depend on what hardware you need, deployment model, licensing... You should really speak to your Cisco Account Manager to obtain accurate costs.

Here is the EoS/EoL announcement page which provides links to EoS notices and recommended replacement part numbers...

Yes you can.

In short you need at the very least:

1] To create a client entry on the ACS for each Cisco device you want to authenticate
2] Configure the Cisco device to use the ACS as a TACACS server for admin authentication

The actual configuration is the same from the device end, but the ACS configuration largely depends on how you want to authenticate users (in groups, different levels of access, from AD, etc)...

Here's a few links to get you started and help you decide which way you want to go...
