A couple hours maybe. You'll want to get a nice saw with a new blade. These cost a lot if you buy them, but you should be able to rent one. I got a price here of a couple hundred bucks for a month. You should only need it for a day or two, so I wouldn't imaging it would cost more than $50-$75. I don't know how handy you are with stuff like laying tile. The job you are describing would take me and a helper 2 days, and would look just like normal brick veneer. Just make sure you do the corners right. You can get instructions on any of the thin brick supplier websites, like interstate, interbrick, or robinson.
BTW, I'm not talking about some cheap $50 tile saw. I'm talking about a 5hp brick/block cutter, that usually runs in the $2000 range. These have accurate guides that you can set to a little less than an inch depth and slice the face from the brick like cutting through butter. Brick isn't very hard material.
