Replace light switch

A light switch no longer works as the light is permanently switched on, I can still hear buzzing behind the wall (when the switch is off). Something may have been dislodged behind as we are currently stripping wallpaper and part of the plaster cracked off where the light switch is. How much will it be to replace the light switch? Also do I need to buy the light switch prior or do you provide the switch? Final question, at the moment it is a simple on/off switch, if I wanted to replace it with a dimmer switch, how much would this cost? Thank you!
