Most toilets are 12 inches from the back wall to the center of the drain. Older ones, before 1940 or so were 14 inches and I have come across a few odd ones that are 9 inches.

How much should you pay to install a toilet?

Depends on whether you already purchased it and whether other parts are needed. If you have the toilet, a Kant leak, a wax seal,FLEXIBLE toilet supply, and the (nuts,bolts and washers) for screwing the toilet to the floor flange, plumber should not charge more than one hour of his rate to install it. Make sure the plumber does NOT silicone around the toilet. If there is a leak from the wax seal under the toilet and it is siliconed, the water stays under the toilet and rots the floor, if you are on a wood floor.

Should you seal the gap between your toilet and tile floor with silicone... why or why not?

If the toilet is sitting solid on the floor, you don't need to. I would use latex instead of silicone because if you should ever have to pull the toilet, it would be much easier. One reason not to seal it down would be if the wax ring should ever fail. You could have a lot of damage to the floor before you noticed the leak.
