Its free. You will need remote desktop access to your server to be able to install it (as in a VPC or dedicated server hosting).
You can download it directly from Microsoft. If you are going to install it you may as well do .net framework 4.5 as its the latest and then you can still support 3.5 if you prefer:
Pretty sure you will need a modern version of Visual Studio to be able to develop so you should get the free Visual Studio Express 2012 for Web from here:

Then you can change the target of your .net website / project by following these steps:
Click OK and your web.config will be updated.
You shouldn't have any major problems with upgrading (hopefully). Next time you build you might see some warning about using deprecated methods - you should follow the advice given in these warnings and use the newer versions they suggest.
You might also have some teething problems if you were doing something clever with your web.config in the 1.1 project.
Post errors here if you get stuck further!
