valve cover leak on my 560sl

How difficult is changing the Valve Cover Gasket? I think that this is my problem. I have noticed a burning smell coming from the engine. The car isn't running hot at all and isn't burning oil.(except maybe from the gasket). There is definitely a burning oil smell.

Is this a hard job?

About what would it cost to have a private shop do it?
