We don't know the cost of filing the application because USCIS has not issued the relevant form. We are on standby for that information. In the meantime, gather your school records, and proof of physical presence in the US for the last 5 years (school records should suffice). If you have any criminal issues, you may want to gather police reports and/or court dispositions.
2. USCIS has yet to announce how the application process will be carried on.
3. I will be updating http://engnishimura.com/faqs/deferred-action-young-immigrants as details become available.
4. Obama's policy does not provide immigration status. It only prevents qualifying individuals from being deported and may provide them with a work permit.

You can read about it at http://www.dhs.gov/ynews/releases/20120612-napo.... According to the announcement the policy is effective immediately, however USCIS will not start accepting applications until August. See a lawyer before you do anything to understand what is at stake. You need to discuss the risks, given that everything may change in November. You need to wait for further guidance to know the process and procedure.
