Replacing roof truss

A contractor was replacing soffit and fascia on my house when he discovered a rotted roof truss. How difficult would it be to replace this truss? Can you give me a ballpark figure too?

To really "replace" a truss, one would have remove a piece of roof and set it in place. As suggested, a built in place truss, sistering, sandwich sistering (both sides) or other engineered repair will likely be done. If there's no roof sag noticeable already I would just do it, as whatever you do will be better than it is currently. But that's me.
