How much does it cost an airliner if an 777 flying on an international flight, had to divert the flight and make an emergency landing due to a passenger having a medical emergency?

Too many "depends" to answer...where are they diverting to? How close is the diversion to the final destination? What are they doing with the passengers? What are their prior arrangements with the diversion airport?

For example, if you were an American carrier flying Tokyo-Los Angeles and diverted into Seattle, probably not bad...you might have maintenance and operations people there, there are plenty of connections to get other passengers to their final destination, etc.

If you were flying LA-Singapore and ended up diverting to, say, Ho Chi Minh City the picture might not be as rosy.

Canadian courts seem to place it at around $70,000 if you divert from Alaska to Vancouver and delay 18 hours:

if the pax had travel insurance, would/do airlines look to them to try and recover some costs?

An interesting 3-part documentary on air safety said that one of the factors that why SR111 Captain did not make a beeline for Halifax by circling to dump fuel was that he feared an overweight landing would be a costly affair in terms of writeoff and reputation.
He wanted to land intact by not chancing it.
The MD-11 is certified for overweight landings albeit bits and parts may come off.
The 3-part documentary is in French.

As far as I know, virtually all aircraft can and often do land overweight perfectly legally when there's a valid reason to do so.

On a somewhat related note, I was on a Ryanair flight once which couldn't land in Bristol due to fog. So we diverted to Bournemouth. Surely Birmingham was easier for all the passengers, but I guess Ryanair doesn't serve BHX so would they have got charged up the wazoo for landing there?

IIRC all aircraft as certified are supposed to be able to land without significant damage and safely up to their maximum certified take-off mass.

Not just that, but is just generally easier to organise for both airline and airport if they have contract and procedures in place.

If it was capable of taxing and taking off, it's capable of landing at the same weight (up to and including MTOW). It's all about controlling sink rate (controlling structural load).
